do you use the sa-learn part of spamassassin to train it with newer
spam?  i just started doing that with tremendous results.

man sa-learn

each of my cyrus users has a mailbox "Junk" and "Non-Junk" and either
manually or automatically via their chosen MUA, spams are placed in
Junk. The Non-Junk is a manual thing that users will do on their own.
then at cron.daily, i have sa-learn do:

sa-learn --SPAM /var/spool/imap/*/user/*/Junk/*.
sa-learn --HAM /var/spool/imap/*/user/*/Non-Junk/*.

and it works like a charm.  within 2 days of learning spam/ham, I have a
drastic reduction of spam in users' inboxes.

wish i would have used this years ago.
