It depends what you are trying to do
Most likely you are trying to start spamd as an unprivileged user
rather than starting it as root and letting it drop to the user
specified by the -u argument. It has to start as root to use a low port.
If you want it to work with user data in home directories it needs to
start as root and run without -u.
