Hi Giampaolo,

I'm not talking about reading autolearn variable from, but
about reading the autolearn result from SA "output".

Autolearning is working correctly. As you can see in my previous mail,
the mail header is referred to the same mail logged by SA.
SpamAssassin is saying autolearn=no, but amavis reported
It's the same story for mails which SA returns autolearn=spam or ham.
amavis always reports autolearn=unavailable.

I'll repeat: look at my previous mail. The header added by amavis is
related to the same mail for which SA logged autolearn=no. So I think
the problem is in communications between amavis and spamassassin.
