Hi MailScanners. Last night, after (i think so) a Perl upgrade to
perl-5.8.6-18 (Fedora Core 4, selinux disabled) MailScanner stoped
working. The setup is MailScanner+Postfix+SpamAssassin+Pyzor. For the
moment SpamAssassin+Pyzor are not active.
When I saw the problem I've upgraded MailScanner to 4.48.4-2(rpm) but no
The mail makes it's way to the hold directory, and when it comes to
MailScanner (Debug=yes):

Can't call method "DropFromBatch" on unblessed reference at

This is the one and only debug line and the proces dies. When
SpamAssassin is enabled there is much more output, but everything before
this line looks perfect.

Any ideas/help?
