Subject Re: Can a .spamassassin directory in a user's home directory override the site-wide configuration?
Date Mon, 15 Mar 2021 10:23:58 GMT
OK, thanks for the additional info. It looks like I was having a 
permissions issue and the bayes_* files were not both r/w for users 
despite having bayes_file_mode set to 0666. I'm thinking probably 
because the bayes_path was originally created manually with root.
