$ man Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf :
bayes_journal_max_size (default: 102400)
SpamAssassin will opportunistically sync the journal and the
database. It will do so once a day, but will sync more often if
the journal file size goes above this setting, in bytes. If set to
0, opportunistic syncing will not occur.
Btw, switching bayes to SQL would releave you from touble of
learning to journal and auto-expiration.
