I have tried re-downloading the definitions, but this system still just keeps
re-starting with clamavmodule. I have another near-identical system that works
fine. I guess I will have to run MailScanner in debug this weekend to see if I
get more clues as to why one system is failing.


MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
