spamassassin seems to have stopped performing on my desktop.
I am getting the following 2-line message in /var/log/maillog :

       to error state

I'm running Fedora-4, with spamassassin-3.0.4-1.fc4
and spamass-milter-0.3.0-8.fc4 ,

Any and all suggestions gratefully received.
service spamass-milter restart

Thanks for the response, and for the suggestion.

I had tried this before, but I tried it again.
(I also restarted spamassassin and sendmail.)
However, I am still getting the message above repeatedly
in /var/log/maillog .
It is repeated every 10 minutes, which is the period
at which I collect email,
admittedly by the rather odd method of uucp (uucico),
but I don't think that should be a problem.

The message comes from sendmail,
and seems to suggest that sendmail does not like to open a socket
with local name /var/run/spamass.sock .

What does it mean to say that this is "unsafe"?

I notice that spamass-milter seems to have no problem
with /var/run/spamass-milter/spamass-milter.sock .

If anyone can throw enlightenment on this,
I shall be very grateful.
