I'm using postfix and i want to use spamassassin ...i folowed all the steps but i still get an error and spamassassin it's not working....

Mar 13 22:25:31 ns postfix/pipe[30912]: 13FD025DC1B: to=<>, relay=spamfilter, delay=0, status=bounced (Command died with status 1: "/usr/local/bin/". Command output: /usr/local/bin/ out.31052: Permission denied cat: write error: Broken pipe /usr/local/bin/ out.31052: No such file or directory )

# by SecuritySage
cd $INSPECT_DIR || { echo $INSPECT_DIR does not exist; exit $EX_TEMPFAIL; }
trap "rm -f in.$$; rm -f out.$$" 0 1 2 3 15
cat | $SPAMASSASSIN -f > out.$$ #|| # { echo Message content rejected; exit $EX_UNAVAILABLE; }

Check the permissions on your /var/spam directory.

It should be rwx for the (or any) user who runs spamassassin.
