I migrated my new mail server to postfix/amavis-new a few days ago and just
want to clarify that all is well.

The system was setup per and the
bayes databases linked as so:

cd  /root/.spamassassin

rm  user_prefs

ln  -s  /var/spool/amavis/.spamassassin/user_prefs  user_prefs

ln  -s  /var/spool/amavis/.spamassassin/bayes_seen  bayes_seen

ln  -s  /var/spool/amavis/.spamassassin/bayes_toks  bayes_toks

Those directories appear to be empty. I took a look at the daily cron email
and noticed this as well:

dbg: bayes: no dbs present, cannot tie DB R/O:

Any reason why it's looking there instead of

Are there any post-install tests/scripts I should be running to make sure
all is well in amavis land? :-)
