I installed and have always installed from RPM and all past installs and 
upgrades have used this method.

We also have 2 SMTP servers for redundancy and it seems that both are 
producing the same results. So whatever is happening it is the same on 2 
servers that had the same process applied.

I personally performed these upgrades and have always been the person 
performing them.

Maybe it is only specific emails in certain conditions. I am not getting 
all email tagged as spam. Seems to be mostly
html content that it is happening to.

Also my upgrade process was as follows.

Extracted tar
ran ./
performed upgrade_MailScanner
