I think that should be:

bayes_path /path/to/.spamassassin/bayes

and the bayes dir should contain your bayes_journal, bayes_seen and
bayes_toks files.

Keep training Bayes with a good selection of spam and ham. My Bayes is
99% effective at catching spam with less than 1% falling in the middle
as uncategorised.
