Hmmm, can't seem to get this to work (I'm running 4.14-9 at the moment -
is this something that only works in later versions?)

Initially I got errors saying it couldn't check destination IP so I
changed FromOrTo: to From: which shut that message up, but for some
reason it won't read the strings from the (unchanged) languages.conf
file or the modified one, despite the logs indicating that it is looking
at the correct file.  Heres a few examples of the logged errors...

Looked up unknown string notspam in language translation file
Looked up unknown string spam in language translation file
Looked up unknown string required in language translation file

As far as I can tell its not managing to look up any strings.  I've
checked and double checked the paths and either I'm blind or daft or
something is broken (I'm quite willing to accept any of those thre

My lines in MailScanner.conf
#Language Strings = /etc/MailScanner/reports/bmrb-custom/languages.conf
Language Strings = /etc/MailScanner/rules/languages.conf.rules

From: 10.0./etc/MailScanner/reports/bmrb-custom/languages.conf.internal
From: default   /etc/MailScanner/reports/bmrb-custom/languages.conf

I haven't changed languages.conf at all, it works fine when selected
directly in MS.conf but not when called through a ruleset.
