Good for you! Whatever works.
Is Mailwasher still bouncing spam, thereby making the spam problem even worse?
For your information:
MailWasher is a commercial product, made by developers who are paid to make it work.
Spambayes on the other hand, can be considered as a sort of hobby project that "some guy" made years ago. He put his work online (for free!) and some other people have added a few bits and pieces to make it work for them. That's it. There is no company backing SpamBayes. The people who made it, don't *have* to improve it. They have no need for a large user base. Most importantly, they have no need to pay attention to people who use the words "must" and "quickly".
Be grateful that they shared it as-is.
