Ok i summarized some things,
maybe any1 can give a comment to it =

when i restart dovecot i get this =

 /etc/init.d/dovecot restart
Warning: Growing pool 'settings' with: 8192

email-headers of  SPAM tagged mails (spamassassin + pyzor + razor detect 
them as spam cause they are spam)
dspam tags the mails like this =

X-DSPAM Confidence 0.8505
X-DSPAM Probability 0.0000

so, Spamassassin detect them as spam and dspam not ? (to an old mail in 
list question , yes i trained ca 10.000 spam mails against some not spam).

because this mail would grown in endless long text i pasted the configs 
on web =

POSTFIX main.cf = http://rafb.net/p/PQy5FN10.html
POSTFIX master.cf = http://rafb.net/p/2l02A087.html
DOVECOT dovecot.conf = http://rafb.net/p/PjvV1h44.html
DSPAM dspam.conf = http://rafb.net/p/7O8lEf46.html

I use Postfix with "virtual users & domains"

dspam.debug shows this entries when i send a mail to the server = 

sorry, guys. but how do i get dspam working 100% , and how do i get this 
retraining working ?
where i can move mails out spam into incoming and other way spam from 
incoming to spamfolder to retrain dspam.

yes, maybe alot stuff, but any feel free to help or to explain ?

thanks ahead from hamburg
