Do you have a firewall blocking port 783 on all interfaces, by any chance?

Try it manually using spamc. Either feed it a file (even an email if you
have one in a file):

spamc -d localhost -p 783 < some_file

or type something at the terminal (and random garbage will do, all
you're testing is the connection to spamd):

spamc -d localhost -p 783

enter some random text and press ctrl-d to give EOF.
