Upgraded and a couple of hours later all hell breaks out. For some 
reason internal TNEF seems broken. Using MailWatch I noticed the same 
{SPAM?} message being sent over and over and over and over again to the 
same user same subject. I would stop MS and then restart and the first 
thing I notice is:

Expanding TNEF archive at /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/... repeating 
over and over every few seconds, more than are being sent or received. I 
finally changed from:

TNEF Expander = internal


TNEF Expander =  /usr/bin/tnef --maxsize=100000000

restart MS and all is back to normal. Was there any change to the 
internal TNEF???
