Doh! is right.

Bogofilter was not installed. I mistakenly assumed (oops) that when I
installed the bogofilter plug-in that also brought along bogofilter.
Should have known better.

So I installed bogofilter with the SuSE package manager (YaST).

However, in a command line <bogofilter -T -b> doesn't do anything. The
terminal just sits there and ..... nothing. So I'm guessing this means
bogofilter cannot be launched from a command line.

Now that bogofilter is on the computer I'm hoping the bogofilter
plug-in will now activate and start scanning my e-mails. 

How do I tell if that is happening? Will I see any sort of on-screen
prompt that bogofilter is active?
