how could you come to this conclusion, when the only BAYES score you have
got was BAYES_50 and you've had no BAYES_ before?

autolearn creates good starting database and it's often easier to re-train
on false-positives and false-negatives than train whole DB manually
(my experience on multiple servers)

do you have razor and dcc installed?
they help much when testing bulk mail / spam.

the question is, why do you have such different scores in amavis.
did you modify scores in amavis' config file?
