Nevermind on the "badly formatted number"... I specified the full path
/usr/bin/nice and it worked ok this time :-)

However, I still want to know if there is a way to specify a nice level for
an entire users processes.

Is there a way to set a 'nice' priority for a particular user? 

Also, when I run this:

nice -n 5 /usr/bin/spamd -d -c -m 5

I get:

nice: Badly formed number. 

I ran a man page on it, and this is the right format, but its not working.

Um, didn't you ask this question yesterday?  Use nice/renice to change the
process priority of the MySQL server so that you don't starve other
processes of CPU....
