This seems to have been the case for me.
I also disabled the rbl checks in mailscanner.conf, thus stopping all rbl

The message from David Sullivan about Osirusoft might explain why the
problem arose in the first place.

Thanks to all who responded so quickly.

It may be a problem with one of the RBL checks not responding.  I think you
should be able to disable these by uncommenting
skip rbl checks = 1
in /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf and then doing a 'service
MailScanner reload'
(I'm assuming this option is effective when SA is caled from MS?)
