I also did not understand the message one month ago. I believe the message
at time was "FATAL: Read http:/..", which I misunderstood as "FATAL:
Reading http://...". In other words, I thought the problem occured during
the read of that http page.
The message is better now, but can be even better:

First of all: 'FATAL' looks scarying, like something that is unexpected
and cannot be handled in a normal way. 'Warning:' would be better IMHO.

Second: The reason for stopping is simple and should be mentioned. AFAIK
the reason is, for example:

"Your Virus Scanner is 'f-prot', but your Minimum Code
Status is 'supported', which do not match. Mailscanner has decided to
stop. Please read http://... for instructions how to solve this.'"

Just my idea.
