As mentioned in the other mail I sent you:
- Check your bayes seen file, perhaps resetting it (rm .....)
- Check if you have any bayes expiry problems (ls
/path/to/bayes/*expir*). If you have, consider disabling the automatic
expiry and using a cron'd sa-learn --force-expire instead.
- Increase the SpamAssassin timout value in MailScanner.conf. The
default is very low. I set it to 300 seconds...
- run sa-update (if you don't do that automatically, which you should).
- Your problems *might* be related to RBLs, so check that and perhaps
turn off any offenders
- do sa-compile.
