after things have settled down, you can probably turn it back on. It's
likely that something has happened to you user bayes db.

That's why I find it helpful to kill off any spamd processes that seem
to linger after I close evolution. You can try moving your user
spamassassin settings... 'mv $HOME/.spamassassin $HOME/.spamassassin.bak
and then launching evolution again and then turn on junk mail filtering.

In the end, I just shut it off since I do have spamassassin running on
my mail server and though having my own user bayes db seemed to pick up
some more via the training within Evolution, eventually it became a
nightmare.
