On most implementations only root will have access to /root/.spamassassin
since /root usually has 700 permissions or more limited ones.
Is MailScanner running as the postfix user or as root? If the latter, those
permission errors shouldn't arise during scans run from MailScanner.
What happens if you run your tests as root?
Did I miss it, or did you not identify which platform you're running
MailScanner on? I stick with CentOS for servers. In my experience
MailScanner has installed and run flawlessly on that distribution for years.
