Still not doing something right.  

Even after editing /etc/mail/spamassassin/ to include the bayes_path
(after having created the directories) and restarting spamd, still only /root/.spamassassing/bayes
gets updates with sa-learn.  

The new directory stays empty.  

Spamd seems to have been invoked as root (ps aux | grep spam).

I'll have to review the setup as I thought it was to be the specific user I created.
