    On one server SpamAssassin is only working at the SMTP level but not working at all at the user level.

    Since updating to 11.11.0-R16948 on a CentOS 4.5 server we keep getting these:

    Code:
    Sep 11 04:36:22 G021 spamd[5746]: auto-whitelist: open of auto-whitelist file failed: locker: safe_lock: cannot create tmp lockfile /.spamassassin/auto-whitelist.lock.G021.XXX.net.5746 for /.spamassassin/auto-whitelist.lock: No such file or directory
    
    what is weird is this part /.spamassassin/auto-whitelist.lock: - it looks like it's trying to create the file in / and not /root/.spamassassin

    I've tried everything I can think of, even reinstalled SpamAssassin and Exim

    spamassassin --lint -D shows no errors except for a few missing modules like Razor which I understand are not essential anyway.

    Anyone know how to fix this? Any guidance would be appreciated.

    That is 'normal' behavior to see that for those particular paths.
