SpamAssassin config files ignored?

When enabling SpamAssissin for an account, a config file ~/.spamassissin/user_prefs is created. However, SpamAssisin ignores the contents of this user_prefs file. This means that the owner of the account effectively has no control over settings like required_hits, whitelist_from, etc.

Is there a setting to made somewhere to &activate& the user_prefs for individual accounts and instruct SpamAssissin to use them?

IMHO, that is all what is needed to make SpamAssissin a truly useful tool.

Thanks for your comments.
