That is what I suspected was the issue because I saw a number of tnef
and doc files in the /var/spool/mqueue.in directory. However, after
cleaning it up, I ran into the problem again. I ran MailScanner in the
debug mode and it reported no problems at all.

Things are stable again, for the time being, but I cannot figure out
what caused the issue to begin with. Has anybody had a similar issue?
