Mmmm, what MTA/POP3/IMAP design are you using?

                   argv=/usr/local/bin/spamfilter.sh \
                   -f ${sender} -- ${recipient}

Mmmm... are you using spamd/spamc?

The spamfilter.sh script runs spamc.

    $ cat /usr/local/bin/spamfilter.sh
    /usr/bin/spamc  | /usr/sbin/sendmail -i "$@"
    exit $?

I ask because I think spamd/spamc can change its uid to read/write into the users folders but it seems you are invoking spamfilter as user "spamfilter" and maybe that user has not the rights to read the users config files :-?


Try by running "spamassassin -D --lint" and watch the "config: read file" output lines.

Look, when I run "spamassassin -D --lint" as the user calling spamd (sm02) I get:

[8059] dbg: config: read file /etc/spamassassin/65_debian.cf
[8059] dbg: config: read file /etc/spamassassin/local.cf
[8059] dbg: config: using "/home/sm02/.spamassassin/user_prefs" for user prefs file

But when runned as "root" I get:

[8066] dbg: config: read file /etc/spamassassin/65_debian.cf
[8066] dbg: config: read file /etc/spamassassin/local.cf

It cannot read the user's config file.

You're right, it looks like SA isn't running from each individual user.

me@haggis:~$ spamassassin -D --lint 2> SA-debug.output.txt
me@haggis:~$ grep user_prefs SA-debug.output.txt
Mar  5 11:32:48.538 [11220] dbg: config: using \
        "/home/me/.spamassassin/user_prefs" for user prefs file
Mar  5 11:32:48.538 [11220] dbg: config: read \
        file /home/me/.spamassassin/user_prefs

root@haggis:~# spamassassin -D --lint 2> SA-debug.output.txt
root@haggis:~# grep user_prefs SA-debug.output.txt
