Just checking the following

Is your relay_domains file setup with each domain that is supposed to be
Also does your MX point to the mailscanner box ?
Is your mailertable setup to the forwarding to the exchange server ?

        Subject:        messages routing - MailScanner not working


Here's my setup. I've got an Exchange Server running Exchange 5.5. I got a
new redhat 8 box setup, which I installed the latest MailScanner rpm onto,
along with f-prot for antivirus. I have mail now successfully being routed
through the linux box through to exchange. The problem comes in with
MailScanner. It's as if it doesn't know that mail is going through. We are
library consortium. One of the things we do is provide 30 library's with
email. One of those domains is working with MailScanner. I send messages
xxx at, and in the headers it says that MailScanner saw it as
clean. And, if I send eicar through, it catches it, and so forth. Does
anyone have any idea why none of the other domains are working with this?
