I have not fount any bayes.mutex. So could I be sure that spamassassin is
using the bayes database store in /root/.spamassassin ?

So if you run sa-learn as root, it updates the bayes files in

If MailScanner is also running as root, it is probably also using the same
bayes files and should be learning from your sa-learn, but if it is running
as some other user it may be using a different set.


  find / -name bayes.mutex

and see if you find any other sets of spamassassin bayes files.
