Writing as an email admin for a small (<25) company running sendmail8.13,
SpamAssassin2.64 and bogofilter .17 , I have to disagree on both counts.
the SA is used to weed out email based on their overall structure (the internal
bayseian is not used at all) . If the email gets passed that, it then gets bogofiltered in a
procmail recipie (instead of different wordlist, i use different parameters for certain
users) with the -u option on. I have not done a retraining in years , just a monthly
maintain run every month to get rid of tokens more than 95 days old.
And things are just fine, users have only complained once this year about email
getting through and have had only 3 false positived so far this year.
