If you send a rich text message with no body and Use TNEF is set to replace,
MailScanner goes into a loop dying and restarting. I tracked the error down
to line 375. I am not sure what is what there but the debug
message is:

/var/spool/mailscanner/incoming/16938/1FCdDL-0003Ai-DQ/winmail.dat: No such
file or directory at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/MIME/ line 435

Same with internal or external tnef parser. If you Change Use TNEF Contents
to add then it will pass. As it stands it would be fairly easy to DOS
MailScanner with an empty bodied rtf message.


This message has been scanned for viruses and
dangerous content by MailScanner, and is
believed to be clean.
