That's hardly efficient
Since amavisd needs, and infact creates those files, if it sees they
are not there for whatever reason, it should just recreate them, log
that fact, an carry on as usual. if it can not create them, then I
understand a die.

i also think the logging is rediculous, it just fills thousands of
lines of the same thing, it should know it has a problem, it should
know it has already logged that problem.
