I would suggest this is caused by a message with a TNEF attachment. Change
your MailScanner.conf from using the internal decoder to the external one
and restart MailScanner. It's been covered before so you might want to
check the list archives for more detail (And I *think* Julian has fixed
this in the latest Beta (Which may not be in the ports tree yet)).
