Some follow on information.... I expected all of the details to be in
mail.log and didn't think to check syslog. :-( More details there:
Dec 8 11:40:35 gw1 mailscanner: Dec 8 11:40:35.083  dbg:
pyzor: got response: Traceback (most recent call last):\n File
"/usr/bin/pyzor", line 8, in <module>\n pyzor.client.run()\n File
"/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/pyzor/client.py", line 1022, in run\n
ExecCall().run()\n File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/pyzor/client.py",
line 180, in run\n os.mkdir(homedir)\nOSError: [Errno 13] Permission
Dec 8 11:40:35 gw1 mailscanner: pyzor: check failed: internal
error, python traceback seen in response
Obviously I have a permissions issue. Now I need to understand why it's
trying to use /var/spool/postfix for .pyzor instead of
I also clicked around more and found the archive search mechanism.
Words of wisdom appreciated.
