The mailscanner .deb version is : 4.41.3-2 working with exim 4.41.3-2
I follow instruction for install on the website.
All tests work great with f-prot and kav-4.5 except the syslog event.

I made a test from a woody and dist-upgrade to sarge and there is no 
But on two machines with NetInstall, same event error.
With Sarge 3.1 NetInstall when installing mailscanner (apt-get) there 
where some errors about folders accesses,
but I made the owner modification on the folders.

I can't see where is the problem.
