I didn't look @ that faq, but it sounds like you might be experiencing
the same problem I had about six weeks ago. I configured spamc to be
called by exim & to run as user mail, but then ran sa-learn & set up all
of my mutt aliases & etc to use ~/.spamassassin as user kenneth. Since
I'm the only user on the machine, I just created an sa group & set up a
system-wide configuration as described in this thread


I think what most people do for systems with more users is to scan
incoming mail from the users' ~/.procmailrc, which does seem a little
cleaner wrt custom BAYES rules
