It's more complicated than that <wink>:  the experimental_ham_spam_imbalance
option is enabled by default in the Outlook client, but disabled by default
for all other spambayes applications.  So unless we know how you're using
spambayes, your testimony isn't telling us whether the option isn't needed
for your 1:3 imbalance, or that the option is helping with your 1:3
