Hi Kevin, thanks for your help.

Are you saying that i shouldnt attempt to use the sa-learn from a bash
script, or command prompt, while logged in as root? If so, how would i run a
script as postfix, as postfix has no login capability?

Thats part of the problem, your MailScanner doesn't run as root under
postfix (runs as postfix user).  So trying to use it as root is liable
to screw up permissions on the bayes files.
