I'm trying to improve the effectiveness of my SpamAssassin installation and I'd like to be able to train my Bayes filters using the sa-learn command (so that it can scan the folder I use to retain messages that should've been flagged as spam).

Is there any way I can do this?

Thank you for your question CScott!

The <a href=""><em>sa-learn</em> documentation</a> states that <em>sa-learn</em> is a command line tool. You do not have <a href="">SSH access</a> on shared business plans, so you will not be able to run the command using shell. You may be able to <a href="">set up a cron job</a> to run the shell command using PHP. Unfortunately, we do not have anything specific on how to script this. We do have information on <a href="">how to run the cron job</a>.

Best Regards,
James R
