I have these file in /root/.spamassassin. In /var/spool/MailScanner/ I have
not nothing except a  SpamAssassin.cache.db in

I do not use spamd but spamassassin it's called from Mailscanner.

It's correct ?

Where are the files


In my case, the files that spamassassin uses when invoked by MailScanner are


However if I were to run sa-learn as userx, the files that would be updated
are in /home/userx/.spamassassin.

In my case also, I use spamd so I use for example

/usr/bin/spamc -u postfix -L spam < message

to learn a message as spam. You may have to experiment with the -u option on
sa-learn to get it to update the right bayes database.
