In the mailscanner.conf file is a section on file locking;
# How to lock spool files.
# Don't set this unless you *know* you need to.
# For sendmail, it defaults to "posix".
# For sendmail 8.12 and older, you will probably need to change it to flock,
# particularly on Linux systems.
# For Exim, it defaults to "posix".
# No other type is implemented.
Lock Type = posix
But set the lock type to one or the other. I have seen some systems not set
the proper default. This is only for linux systems.
MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
