If the server has been setup to do spam detection, why on earth did you
disable it?
... because I want to control here by myself, what is spam and what not ;-)

As mentioned before, I donÂt need an initialized filter.

You *need* to train it - it's how it works - although I see from a later
message that what you mean is that you *have* already done that.
I thought I did, I hoped I did it - but I donÂt KNOW if I did it :-(((
IÂd be glad if it would work after being presented 100 spam by the
evolutuion-built-in classificator (that wadded paper thing) - but it
So the question is: How can I check, if bogofilter is learning at all ?

I don't use bogofilter - I've never looked at it before this - but it is
clear from the bogofilter FAQ on the bogofilter site at

that it is relatively easy to use bogoutil to report the state of the
database in terms of how much it's learned etc.  No doubt there is also
a way of poking a message through bogofilter itself to see if it does
indeed clasify something a spam outside of Evolution.
ThatÂs exactly the site, IÂve been reading up and down all morning.
Maybe IÂm dumb, maybe IÂm german - but: where the hell is the use of
bogoutil to check the installation described ?
I donÂt want to compact my DB, I donÂt want to convert or switch
anything, I donÂt want to ignore tokens, I didnÂt remove tokens nor do I
want to do that. I just want that filter to filter :-O

Anyway ...
bogoutil -d .bogofilter/wordlist.db |wc -|
displays: > --- VERY HELPFUL

bogoutil -w .bogofilter/wordlist.db .MSG_COUNT
displays: 895 spam 6 good
SO WHAT ? IsnÂt 895 mails enough to learn a bit ?

bogoutil -p .bogofilter/wordlist.db thomas
spam    good    Fisher
1       0       0.991605
What the hell does that mean ?
Found 1 spam-mail including the word "thomas", found no good mail with
it, so with 0.991605[dimensionless somethings created by Fisher], all
mails including "thomas" are spam ???

In the meantime I thought it canÂt get worse, however ...
dbverify -a .bogofilter/wordlist.db
Fehler in der Datenbank: -- DB ist eine Datei, kein Verzeichnis.
That means, itÂs an error, that the DB is a file, not a directory ?:-|

... and 
What is a non-transaction mode ???
Does that make sense ??? Database, that does no transactions ???
Databases I set up, are always doing transactions ...

Sorry for stepping on peopleÂs toes, but thatÂs the most disconcerting
FAQ ever read :-(
