Hi Steve,

I have run into this problem after upgrading from version 0.4 to 0.5 on
fedora, surprisingly it seemed to work ok with perl-DBD-MySQL-2.9002-1
before I upgraded.

Hi Eric,

You'll still need 2.1028.

However I saw a neat trick done by an admin recently who installed the

something like "use lib '/usr/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/DBD-MySQL/';" to
the top of to use the older version instead.

Kind regards,
