About sa-learn spam

Post by aurlia93 » 2018-11-15 10:30

I set the schedule learn
echo start %DATE% %TIME% >> D:\hMailServer\Logs\learn-spam.log
"C:\Program Files\JAM Software\SpamAssassin for Windows\sa-learn.exe" --spam --folders="D:\hMailServer\Logs\spam-dir.txt" >> D:\hMailServer\Logs\learn-spam.log
echo end %DATE% %TIME% >> D:\hMailServer\Logs\learn-spam.log
and I got the
start 2018/11/15 16:00:05.03
Learned tokens from 1 message(s) (1901 message(s) examined)
end 2018/11/15 16:00:47.62
I was think it is worked .
But still received looks similar SPAM.

have you already trained the other 1900 mails? if so why do you keep them there?
also try to add option --siteconfigpath

if you mean your learning was giving good results in the past but started to fail, you're probably right, i suffer the same. this has been discussed in SA mailing lists recently.

thanks for reply
after trained the old mail can remove right?

This is new mail server(SpamAssassin), and I don't know how much mail trained will be useful.
and I don't sure my setting is right.

I see someone use --sync option,
but I don't know it work in where? mean what...

thanks

what is in D:\hMailServer\Logs\spam-dir.txt ?

you better start from scratch. delete c:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\.spamassassin\bayes_*.*
you should train both spam and ham. i suggets you save about 200-300 (1000+ if you like) recent spam and ham mails in seperate folders and fire your learn.bat. delete them when finished.
don't care about --sync for now.

read docs carefully:
