Thanks, everyone who replied. Indeed, the bogofilter plug-in was
installed with claws-mail but bogofilter itself was not. Duh!!!   

It just never occurred to me that bogofilter would not still be there
after the clean install of the operating system.

zypper install bogofilter did the trick. It's now working.  :o)

whereis bogofilter reports exactly as you said it would.

Thanks again to the list.
