    Issue with perl scanner

    Hi All,

    I have setup qmail in one of our servers and configured qmail scanner (I am using Spamassassin, Clamd and Perl scanner) for Spam/ Virus searching. It was working fine till last week, but now qmail scanner is not working and not receiving any mails if Perl scanner is enabled.

    Error received in the log is shown below.

    "Mon, 04 Apr 2011 23:02:41 EDT:22417: error_condition: cannot open dir /var/spool/qscan/tmp/my.domain.com6179022417/ - Permission denied"

    I've reinstalled qmailscanner, perl modules, maildrop but it didn't made any difference. If I am disabling perlscanner everything is working fine. I've disabled all perl scanner policies but the issue persists.

    Does anyone have any idea to resolve this issue.

    Thanks in Advance.

    What are the directory permissions for:


    The permission denied is a tell tale sign that something isn't right with the permissions or ownership of one of those directories.

    I've give 777 perm for /var/spool/qscan/tmp/ and 755 for /var/spool/qscan/ and owner of /var/spool/qscan/ folder is "qscand".
