That's similar to the behavior they're seeing. Much lower URIBL hits than 
when running SA from the command line on the test MX, and the log shows 
problems with pyzor (though the excerpt I saw didn't mention a traceback, 
it just said "no output").

FWIW they're running amavisd-new, and we're trying to figure out why the 
scores on MTA-processed messages are so much lower than when the same 
message is passed through command-line SA in debug mode.
