I have set up SpamAssassin, Amavis, Postfix, and Courier on Debian Lenny
using http://www.freespamfilter.org/FC4.html as a guide. I am having a
problem where it seems like SpamAssassin fails to learn spam emails. I
have about 2000 spam emails which I add to daily. I have a cron job set
up to automatically learn spam from my IMAP spam folder. However, it
seems that nearly identical spam is consistently getting through (about
10 of the same emails a day). Has anyone had this problem? In my logs I
get things similar to:

'Dec 18 23:53:32 nova amavis[31908]: (31908-20) Passed CLEAN,
[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] <jessie at confettiantiques.com> ->
<jessie at caandb.com>, ...'

It appears that the email is being passed through Amavis due to the,
"Passed CLEAN".

In my /etc/amavis/confed/15-content_filter_mode is:

"use strict;

# You can modify this file to re-enable SPAM checking through spamassassin
# and to re-enable antivirus checking.

#
# Default antivirus checking mode
# Uncomment the two lines below to enable it back
#

@bypass_virus_checks_maps = (
   \%bypass_virus_checks, \@bypass_virus_checks_acl,
\$bypass_virus_checks_re);


#
# Default SPAM checking mode
# Uncomment the two lines below to enable it back
#

@bypass_spam_checks_maps = (
   \%bypass_spam_checks, \@bypass_spam_checks_acl, \$bypass_spam_checks_re);

1;  # ensure a defined return"

Please help,

A frustrated admin.
