Something strange happens. Sometimes I notice that mail are no more 
scanned by mailscanner so I go on my server & notice mailscanner is 
running but effectively does not scan emails anymore. Have a look at my 
"hudge" logs and don't notice anything strange so i issue some commands:

# service sendmail stop
Arrêt de sendmail : [ OK ]
Arrêt de sm-client : [FAILED]
# /etc/init.d/MailScanner restart
Shutting down MailScanner daemons:
MailScanner: [ OK ]
incoming sendmail: [ OK ]
outgoing sendmail: [ OK ]
Starting MailScanner daemons:
incoming sendmail: [ OK ]
outgoing sendmail: [ OK ]
MailScanner: [ OK ]

And everything is back up ;)

This happens about once a week. I am running centos 4.2 updated.

Best regards
