Subject: Could not analyze message {Virus Scanned}


I have a customer who cant recieve an email from a certain domain, the
message is quarantined with a quarantine report showing "Could not analyze

The email is very basic, plain text with no attachments.

Scan Messages = %rule-dir%/scan.messages.rules

and set the following in scan.messages.rules

FromOrTo:       default no
From:     no

where is the domain sending the email being blocked and is the domain recieving. However the message is still being

Can anyone advise what can cause the "Could not analyze message"? or why my
ruleset setup is not working?

Kind Regards
