That's fine, that's a config file :-)

What does

cd /tmp
/usr/lib/MailScanner/vexira-wrapper /usr/lib/Vexira --allfiles -s -z
-noboot -nombr -r1 -rs -lang=EN --alltypes .

produce? (don't forget the "." on the end)

Any errors? If not, what version of Vexira are you using?
Please can you send me the output of the above command. Might help if you
put a copy of in a subdirectory of /tmp so that it has something
to find.
