Hi all,

My configuration:
Redhat Linux 9.0, Postfix 2.0.16-4, clamav-0.71, MailScanner-4.31.6-1
In /etc/MailScanner.conf:
Quarantine Infections = yes
Quarantine Silent Viruses = yes
Quarantine Whole Message = yes
Quarantine Whole Messages As Queue Files = yes
Quarantine Dir = /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine

Till now everything works like a charm

My problem:
postdrop cannot deliver mail out of quarantine folder

the error message is as follows:
#postdrop -v /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/20040608/3E3172EE8B4/3E3172EE8B4
postdrop: chdir /var/spool/postfix
postdrop: open maildrop/52A742F28C7
postdrop: send attr queue_id = 52A742F28C7
queue_id52A742F28C7postdrop: fatal: uid=0: unexpected record type: 67
postdrop: remove maildrop/52A742F28C7
i googled for record type: 67 without luck.
Does anybody know what this might be?
Thanks in advance.
