    Hello,

    noticed these files earlier today while doing some other checking and never noticed them before, which I assume are associated with Spamassassin in some way:
    Code:
    FOLDER: /var/spool/mqueue/.spamassassin
    
    -rw-------  1 mailnull mailnull 5238784 Dec 20 21:40 auto-whitelist
    -rw-------  1 mailnull mailnull   83160 Dec 20 21:40 bayes_journal
    -rw-------  1 mailnull mailnull 1339392 Dec 20 21:38 bayes_seen
    -rw-------  1 mailnull mailnull 5431296 Dec 20 21:38 bayes_toks
    
    how are these used w/spamassassin and are they needed ??

    TIA,
    Mickalo

    Did you copy .spamassassin directory in /var/spool/mqueue/ by accident/mistake? The .spamassassin directory is not used/needed in /var/spool/mqueue/

    no never copied any files in this location. I just noticed the other day these files. I did delete them, but they come right back.
    while monitoring the exim log files, when spam is detected/flagged, then it writes to this folder, updating the files, for some reason .... not sure why.

    if I delete the folder, then errors start showing up in the exim log files.

    Check your conf file. There might be a reference to that directory. You should be using /root/.spamassassin/ instead.

    Erm, no - that's bogus information.

    Those files are used by MailScanner as the central bayesian database. They're there because /var/spool/mqueue/ is the login path for the mailnull account.

    Don't delete them, they're meant to be there.

    Then it's SA's server-wide bayesian database for whichever SA implementation you're using. The path is usually set in a cf file in /etc/mail/spamassassin/
