  I edited the filename.rules.conf file and found out that it had some bad
tabs in it.  When I did that and sent an executable by email it worked!.
But I did the same thing today, after no changes to the configuration, and
it's not working again.  where is the log for mailscanner again??

Have you also edited the mailscanner.conf file to point to the correct
Filename Rules     = /opt/mailscanner/etc/filename.rules.conf

We are testing f-prot and it works as a charme. We stopped the test
however because on the test machine we seemed to lose messages. We want
to investigate that first.
