One of those tests that I never run unless there's a problem is the
SpamAssassin Bayes Database Info from withing MailWatch. So I ran it
today just for the heck of it. All of my data seems to indicate nothing
has happened since around May, 2008.
Looking at my files in /etc/MailScanner/bayes shows the files are being
But the bayes_seen file is getting a little large. So going through the
MS.conf file, I find I rebuild bayes once a day. I look in my
spam.assassin.prefs.conf file and a comment say I expire by a cron job.
I can't find the cron job to see if it's working.
So I see a few problems:
MW isn't pointing to a proper set of bayes files.
MS must not be set up right to either rebuild or expire my bayes files.
I must not have moved something for that cron file to exist.
I'm running version 4.75.11. Everything seems to run OK, but I got a
feeling I'm going to hit a bump in the road on that bayes_seen file one
Any thoughts, anyone?
