Look into the --dbpath option of sa-learn. Otherwise only 'spammy'
will use bayes. Maybe put it in your homedir or some global location???
Thinking for a second a good method is for /var/spool/mail/spammy
to be 644. Then add a cron job for everyone to do a sa-learn --spam
on it regularly. This will allow personal ham/spam while using the spam
trap. Truncate that file regularly. Still holds on a one-user system.

Try that header line I gave. Make sure you display the X-Spam-Status header.
If that is there then spamassassin is being run (Technically the
X-Spam-Checker-Version is the only header gaurenteed to exist).
I'd suggest the subject rewrite with report safe 0 until you know its
Please note I set up spamassassin a few days ago because I was a bit bored.
Personally I use procmail to seperate out my spam into a seperate
mailbox. I then have some mutt macros to pass messages to sa-learn if the
bayes is wrong.
