In all my accounts, when I try to enable SpamAssassin, I get "The disk write test failed. You may have exceeded your quota, or the disk is full."

First off, the disk isn't full. I wish it gave a better error message than this. I don't even know where to begin.

Sounds to me as if your home partition is mounted as Read Only. Perhaps you have a corrupt disk ?

Check to make sure that quota information is correct, but the spamassassin module and binaries are often not installed. Force install it with :

/scripts/realperlinstaller --force Mail::SpamAssassin

If you're still getting weird disk input/output errors I'd definately check drive health with smartctl (provided SMART is supported and enabled on the drives), grep hdX /var/log/messages (where hdX is your hard drive device) to make sure you dont see 8,000 drive warnings/errors.
