How many seconds you wait for Pyzor to complete, before scanning continues
without the Pyzor results. A numeric value is optionally suffixed by a
time unit (s, m, h, d, w, indicating seconds (default), minutes, hours,
You can configure Pyzor to have its own per-server timeout. Set this
plugins timeout with that in mind. This plugins timeout is a maximum

mailing list for alternate servers that are not published via
If you are using multiple Pyzor servers, a good rule of thumb would be to
set the SpamAssassin plugins timeout to be the same or just a bit more
than the per-server Pyzor timeout (e.g., 3.5 and 2 for two Pyzor servers).
If more than one of your Pyzor servers is always timing out, consider
removing one of them.
