Red face Same error overhere

-rwxrwxr-x 1 postfix www-data 2.0K Mar 17 22:54 bayes.mutex*
-rw------- 1 postfix postfix 15K Mar 17 22:54 bayes_journal
-rwxrwxr-x 1 postfix www-data 37M Mar 17 22:54 bayes_seen*
-rwxrwxr-x 1 postfix www-data 10M Mar 17 22:54 bayes_toks*

Problem is that mailscanner recreated file and changes rights back to postfixostfix.

Dear Friend:

If you follow my thread here there was no answer to this problem.

I am sorry to tell you that after one year I didn't find a suitable solution to this problem.

In fact you are the second one who has the exact issue.

I follow all the instructions on the SPAM SNAKE tutorial here without success.

Anything I can help you, just ask.

if error sent by mail, from cron deamon

bayes: cannot open bayes databases /var/spool/MailScanner/spamassassin/bayes_* R/O: tie failed: Permission denied
bayes: locker: safe_lock: cannot create lockfile /var/spool/MailScanner/spamassassin/bayes.mutex: Permission denied

bayes: expire_old_tokens: locker: safe_lock: cannot create lockfile /var/spool/MailScanner/spamassassin/bayes.mutex: Permission denied

Than view
cd /var/spool/Mailscanner
check Permissions
ls -alFh

and change permissions on Spamassassin
chmod 777 spamassassin

and all files within de spamassassin folder.

that helps for my
