I reported this a couple of weeks ago with the subject "Error with a Zip
File - System at 100% CPU"

I ran MailScanner in debug mode and it reports an error:

format error: bad signature: 0x5003ff9b at offset 737316 in file
 at /usr/perl5/site_perl/5.005/Archive/Zip.pm line 677

I still have a copy of the df qf and zip if interested.

Might be interesting to see if you get the same error.

Solaris 8, Sendmail 8.11.7p1+Sun/8.11.7, MailScanner 4.29.7
