I have been having some funny behaviour out of MailScanner when I restart
it. I am currently running mailscanner-4.22-4.
1) running mailcanner stop -> mailscanner shutsdown, but there are still a
bunch of sendmail processes running. Can I go ahead and restart
mailscanner, or should I shut down the sendmail processes as well? In the
previous version shutting down mailscanner shut down the sendmail processes
2) after restarting mailscanner my mqueue.in directory starts to backup up.
I can see that mail start to stack up to where all my mail starts to be
delayed in being delivered. After about an hour my mqueue.in directory
get's back to a normal size. Why would just shutting down and restarting
mailscanner have this effect? I have been doing a mailscanner stop,
sendmail stop, mailscanner start.
