look for it...
At work I trained spambayes (the Oulook plugin) with a 100:1 ham/spam
ratio (1000 ham, 10 spam), the results were good enough.
At home I trained spambayes (command line, procmail) with a 1:10
ham/spam ratio (60 ham, 600 spam), I don't see anything happening.
I'm quite sure the problem isn't spambayes, the problem is certainly
something I have missed in the configuration. I blame cryptic
documentation. English is not my native language.

I don't see any X-Spambayes-Classification header...

I don not have a .spambayesrc file, should I?
I don't want filtering to be done for each user separately, but for all
the users at once.
