(Apart from this being the wrong mailing list:-)... Have you set
(at least) in either /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf or
Why do you have them all with s? Effective group is immaterial, since
these aren't executable... The only one that might have the effect you
want is the "." directory one:-). Do a
chmod 0660 *
to clear that (no, it doesn't hurt anything either, and don't clear it
on the directory:-).
Then check in MailScanner.conf that you have:
Incoming Work Permissions = 0660
Quarantine Permissions = 0660
as well as the
Run As User = postfix
Run As Group = postfix
Quarantine User = postfix
Quarantine Group = www-data
Most important is the bayes_file_mode "mask".
