When sa-learn is run from MailWatch (it's run as the postfix user), it throws this error:
SA Learn: config: path "/root/.spamassassin" is inaccessible: Permission denied, Learned tokens from 0 message(s) (1 message(s) examined)
Running "sudo -u postfix spamassassin --lint -D" gives this bit of info:
dbg: config: read file /etc/mail/spamassassin/mailscanner.cf warn: config: path "/root/.spamassassin" is inaccessible: Permission denied dbg: config: mkdir /root/.spamassassin failed: mkdir /root/.spamassassin: Permission denied at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/Mail/SpamAssassin.pm line 1577 dbg: config: Permission denied dbg: config: using "/etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf" for user prefs file
The bayes tokens are learned correctly, however this error is a minor annoyance and I'd like to fix it... Either by forcing SpamAssassin to not check the /root/.spamassassin/ directory for the config & prefs, or to fix MailWatch so it calls sa-learn correctly & doesn't throw this error.
