    Default Newbie to spamassassin- How to make it learn?

    Hi
    Disgusted with the amount of spam received, I installed
    Spamassassin2.54 and configured it, It works properly for the past one
    month. I use fetchmail to receive mail and invoke sylpheed to read
    them from /var/spool/ mail/ srikanth folder and the spam goes to
    "caughtspam " file in my home directory .

    Nowadays I see one or two mails slipping past spamassassin. I saw that
    spamassassin can be trained. man pages did not reveal much. Since the
    mails are read in sylpheed how to point it out to SA?
    sa-learn command also does not work, it says command is not found.
    Can any body give some pointers or some links where tutroials can be
    read.?
    Thanks in advance

    Not exactly a reply to the question, but I find that spamprobe is both
    easier to configure and more reliable than spamassassin (and
    bogofilter).
