Subject Bayes auto-learn - not happening
Date Tue, 08 Aug 2017 18:06:26 GMT
Postfix 3.2.2
Amavisd-new 2.11.0
Spamassassin 3.4.0
Site-wide configuration

This is a new box and I've configured some conservative values for auto-learn.  I've enabled
it properly AFAIK, but I can't see any sign of it working.  

I have these set in
use_bayes               1
bayes_auto_learn        1
bayes_auto_learn_threshold_nonspam -1.7
bayes_auto_learn_threshold_spam 10.0
# this is a filename prefix, not a directory per se
bayes_path              /etc/mail/bayes/bayes
bayes_file_mode         0666

-------------bayes prep ----------------
Start fresh for troubleshooting:
su amavis -c 'sa-learn --clear'

Add one spam manually and check tokens:

[root@tn2 mail]# su amavis -c 'sa-learn --dump magic'
0.000          0          3          0  non-token data: bayes db version
0.000          0          1          0  non-token data: nspam
0.000          0          0          0  non-token data: nham
0.000          0       2157          0  non-token data: ntokens

---------amavisd prep----------------

Restart amavisd/spamassassin just to be sure all configs read..

------- ready to process -------------

The next high scoring spam arrives, it was sent to my spam mailbox.  It did NOT autolearn.
 Nor did several others.  

To troubleshoot, I took one that did not autolearn, and learned it manually by:
su amavis -c 'sa-learn -D --spam --showdots  --mbox /home/mail/onespam

even though this message was slightly over the threshold, the log says it learned anyway:
-D log snippet:
Aug  8 12:37:27.216 [13198] info: archive-iterator: skipping large message: 858 lines, 262203
bytes, limit 262144 bytes

Learned tokens from 1 message(s) (1 message(s) examined)

Verified it learned:

[root@tn2 mail]# su amavis -c 'sa-learn --dump magic'
0.000          0          3          0  non-token data: bayes db version
0.000          0          2          0  non-token data: nspam

Partial header from that message:

X-Spam-Flag: YES
X-Spam-Score: 17.374
X-Spam-Level: *****************
X-Spam-Status: Yes, score=17.374 tag=-9999 tag2=5 kill=6.31
        tests=[RCVD_IN_BRBL_LASTEXT=1.644, RCVD_IN_DNSWL_NONE=-0.0001,
        RCVD_IN_RP_RNBL=1.284, RCVD_IN_SBL_CSS=3.558, RCVD_IN_SORBS_WEB=1.5,
        URIBL_SBL=0.644, URIBL_SBL_A=0.1] autolearn=no autolearn_force=no

Why aren't my spams getting auto-learned?  If sa-learn "ate" it, shouldn't auto-learn too?

I know there is a default 200 threshold before Bayes starts tagging anything, but I understand
it should learn without issue.

Can't figure out what's wrong...
