Try capturing a queue file _before_ MailScanner gets at it (just start
postfix but not MailScanner, pass a message in, copy the queue
file...) and send it, together with as much detail as you can give,
directly to Jules (it's OK to CC the list, but he's the one that needs
see what can be the problem, and fix it). He's a tad busy at the
moment, but ... with that he should be able to decipher what gois bad.

Is it every message, every time, or is it intermittent?
