    This is what the perms look like on my setup:

    drwxr-xr-x 5 postfix celeryd 4096 Dec 5 2012 MailScanner

    drwxr-xr-x 294 postfix celeryd 12288 Jul 2 20:07 incoming
    drwxr-xr-x 19 postfix celeryd 4096 Jul 2 06:25 quarantine
    drwxr-xr-x 2 postfix celeryd 4096 Dec 5 2012 spamassassin

    Hi, thanks for your reply.

    i checked and file /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/setuptools.egg-info exists but is empty.

    The script you uploaded doesn't seem to work, but this one does (I basically did exactly what you said to do in your tutorial, but change the PIDFILE path)

    For the permission, do you think my permissions are insecure ? they seem to work fine but I was unsure

    Hi again,

    I want to thank you again for all your help (I feel I don't say it enough :) )

    In any case, I must have done something odd, as when I set the same perms as you all my messages cannot be processed by mailscanner. If I set the write permission for the group on folder /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine in addition to what you showed, everything works

    I managed to fix the problem with setuptools.egg-info by just remloving the file and reinstalling setup tools :

    sudo rm /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/setuptools.egg-info
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall python-setuptools
