I started using the bayesian routines about 3 months ago, and I took
the time to train spamassassin using about 2300 messages from my spam
folder, and about 2500 messages taken from my inbox, my personal mail,
and all the mailing lists I belong to (including svn/cvs commit
lists), and it's turned out to be uncannily accurate.  The only
problem is that spamassassin inexplicably doesn't run certain mails (
< .5% ) through the bayesian filter, and those wind up in my inbox.
Anyway, I tuned my prefs to give a lot of weight to the Bayesian

Here's my ~/.spamassassin/user_prefs:

    required_hits 6

    score BAYES_99 9.0
    score BAYES_90 8.0
    score BAYES_80 7.0
    score BAYES_70 6.0
    score BAYES_60 5.0

    score ADVERT_CODE 3

    score USER_AGENT_PINE -0.5
    score USER_AGENT_MOZILLA_UA -0.5

Thanks for updating, Noel.
