Every day Logwatch is sending a message of very large size, probably because things error inside and CRON likes to report when that happens.

The most notable of these which I want to reverse engineer is the following:
Code:
"Did not receive a response from the pyzor server public.pyzor.org:24441 for 3.5 seconds!"
UDP_OUT has 24441:

Code:
20,21,53,113,123,873,6277,24441
Please provide some guidance who is this Pyzor thing and how can I get to know it better?

So far I found this documentation on Pyzor with how to test:
//https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/spamassassin/UsingPyzor

Code:
echo "test" | spamassassin -D pyzor 2>&1 | less
However can't find spamassassin binary on server anywhere?

EDIT:

I found the outgoing port on UDP and removed the fact that I thought it's on TCP_OUT
Added link to Apache docs

Feedback on this is the above echo test command works.

I believe Logwatch must be timing up because it's in the middle of a four hour backup. I can see no other explanation than the 3.5 second timeout is too small during a backup. I'll shift the backup a few hours away from Logwatch and report back again on the forum but this is going to have to go through change control first.
