Is ther any way to copy what one servers SpamAssassin has learned to another server, to forgo all the learning? I have a cleint that has had there server running for several years, I'm about to place another server (different Client) and would like to take advantage of the SpamAssassin database!

Maybe, maybe not. You could try to copy the bayes_journal, bayes_seen and bayes_toks files to a different server, but it might not give you what you want. Usually, it's a big no-no to transfer bayes data from one mail server to another, simply because your new client likely sees other types of spam and (more importantly) not spam than your first client do.

Worst case, you'll end up with a lot of false positives (i.e legitimate mail tagged or blocked as spam).

And if you absolutely must know, I did it (once!) a handful of years ago. I copied the bayes db from a tech consulting company to a transportation company. The transport guys' legit mail wasn't being recognized as such at all ...

Thanks - this helps a lot, fortunatly both clients are similar in business model, and I'll have all spam Marked only, then sent to the end user for the first few months, but the database will speed the learning process up IMO
