    I just did a backup and once it was complete, spamassassin wouldn't start back up. This is the backup command I used:
    And this is what I get when I try to restart spamassassin:
    It errors but then claims to start, then a status indicates it's not running...

    Any leads on what the "Insecure directory" is referring to?

    ok got it, my mistake.

    when installing some other software I changed the permissions on directories, changed them back and it's all good.

    I'm having the same problem but i don't remember installing anything :(

    So what folders did you have problems with and what did you do to them to make it work :)

    I think the only directories that may have been affected were:
    /usr/local/bin and/or /usr/local/sbin

    I set the permissions back to what they were originally. Spamassassin seems to require certain permissions so that its settings can't be tampered with.
