..sorry for that, the output is now 38693 - but what doews that HELP ?

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

This means that bogofilter is being trained, it's working.  This is a
GOOD thing. It means you have eliminated one of the possible areas of
... fine, thank you :-)

However, a spam filter needs to learn good mail as well as bad - only 6
good messages learnt means it still won't start filtering.  You need
about 100 of both types.
ThatÂs the most new to me. I was fatally wrong about the function of
bogofilter. Thought, it would filter too much in a first approach and I
would manually have to mark the ham in the spam-folder ???

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 ?:-|

Where does it say to use that command?  Shouldn't it be

  db_verify .bogofilter/wordlist.db
db command not found on my system, so I thought dbverify ... (maybe
wrong again?)

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

Try reading up on databases - non-transaction mode just means that
rather than going through an SQL type interface that performs atomic
operations on a backend database, the program interacts directly with
the database files - it's simpler but more risky.
... so was my guess, but using a local database on a personal computer,
I take that "risk" ?:-|
