Ok done this and it's now reporting 'Failed to create connection to  
spamd daemon: Connection refused' in debug (Mind you the mail doesn't  
half go though quick like that, although spam do increase a fair bit!).

As far as I can see the socket is correct with correct permissions and  
I have even moved it to /tmp to make sure it's not a permissions error  
in the directories above. Any ideas?
