Yep -- it's a bit kludgy, because the Berkeley DB format is really
unportable (architecture-level differences, plus incompatible changes
between their own releases. argh).
So I wrote a simple tool that just dumps a DB_File to a text format, and
loads a new one on the other side, when I ran into this situation myself.
Here it is:
However that's not great, because it'll nuke anything that's already
been learned there.
long term: the best way to do it is to set up 2 mailboxes on dagda that
you can bounce (ie. resend with existing hdrs) spam or ham messages to,
and then have a cron job that runs "sa-learn" over their contents
nightly or so.
(in fact that's a good way to get this started off anyway, if you've
got a couple of hundred spam/ham samples on-hand -- just set up those
aliases and bounce those samples all over to them.)
