Also add this to /var/spool/MailScanner/.razor/razor-agent.conf
razorhome = /var/spool/MailScanner/.razor

 From the man page:
     Directory where Razor Agents look for files. All files in 
razor-agent.conf without a full path will be relative to razorhome. The 
default is /etc/razor/ for root, and ~/.razor/ for every other user. If 
razorhome does not exist, it will be created.
