Hi Kris

Yes, using an ip socket circumvents the permission maze of file based
sockets :-)

Aye! Having ClamAV / SpamAssassin / MIMEDefang all running under the
same user, their directories and logfiles (also mind
logrotate / syslog configs) belonging to that user etc. fixed the issue
for us, with the new issue that upgrading those packets usually revert
the 'user' fix and we have to fix it again. But that's life as a
Sysadmin :-)
