Particular emails forcing SA timeouts

I have recently starting seeing a lot of graphical porn coming through due
to what appears to be SA timeouts. I can only assume something in these
emails are forcing the timeouts. They all seem to have similar headers as
below: This seems to be the only email that is getting the timeouts.

MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
X-CN-MailServer2-MailScanner-Information: Please contact the ISP for more
X-CN-MailServer2-MailScanner: Found to be clean
X-CN-MailServer2-MailScanner-SpamCheck: not spam, SpamAssassin (timed out)
X-MailScanner-From: dwyerju at

They seem to be incomplete as this is the way this ends.

The logs for this message indicate:

Sep  2 07:47:12 mailserver2 MailScanner[12305]: Content Checks: Detected and
disarm HTML message in i82BjnJn027100

I am running MS version 4.31.6-1 and SA 2.63-1

Is anyone else seeing this and does anyone have a clue?
