spamassassin, user prefs and SQL

Hello,

I am trying to store user prefs in the SQL userpref table. I want to be able to take score adjustments in local.cf and store them in the users sql database. The end goal is to have user1 be able to have a score of 1.5 for x rule and user2 to have a score of 2.0 for the same rule. From what I am reading, this should be possible.

 I understand the difference between @GLOBAL,$GLOBAL and <username>. The problem I seem to have is that scores like HTML message do not seem to work if you put it in the sql database.

Unless I misunderstand the rule, this seems to be a local rule. Whenever I add it there (the SQL DB), when matching, it has a score of 0.0. I'm wondering, and basing this conjecture off of an article, if only certain rules can be stored and used in the userpref sql database.  I

I have read this in the spamassassin forums located here: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/spamassassin/users/1940?search_string=sql%20prefs%20user%20scores;

I've also googled around, but not finding much (other than the above link)

I do some some parse errors in the spamd log, this might have something to do with it, but having trouble finding an answer for solving it.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am a Spamassassin user and not a Spamassassin expert - sorry.

My user.prefs file is unique to me. There is (I think) a global prefs file or other type file that does the basic work. But I add my rules, whitelists and blacklists in my own Spamassassin prefs file. I don't think there is any need for you to control it.
I do not see Spamassassin as a user friendly tool, however, and newer spam systems use the concept of quarantines that can be released if necessary, thus whitelisting that address.
