I tried upgrading from 4.45.4 to 4.54.6 today and had
problems so I had to revert back to 4.45.4 which is
working correctly and has been ever since I updated to

I can start 4.54.6 ok but as soon as a message arrives
I get the below message in the log file:

May 28 20:58:47 mail.server.com <22>MailScanner[4822]:

Therefore, the messages never gets scanned and the
process restarts and repeats and each time the same
message gets logged to the archive file.

System Info:
Solaris 9
MailWatch 1.0.3
Clam AV 0.88.2
Spam Assassin: 3.1.2

Again 4.45.4 works great, this problem just appears
when I which to 4.54.6. Let me know if you have any
trys, suggestions, or need more info.

Thanks for the help
