> I thought they were set sufficiently for the MS user to write to them, but I was wrong. Thanks for the tip - I'm feeling like a dork now since the problem was permissions... shoulda confirmed that they were proper before sending to the list...

had this one earlier in the week myself - thought it was worth a check.

>>Also worth checking with MS and SA in debug mode buy setting the flags

> I had turned on the SA debug flag, but wasn't getting anything extra in syslog. The comments in the .conf file don't specify that both debugs need to be on in order to view the SA debug info - once I turned on the MS debugging, I saw right away that the problem was permissions on the bayes_* files.
