I might be wrong, but... this actually might indicate a problem with
(one of) your Filetype Rules files. Check them over with a fine
comb... Make sure that all fields are separated by <TAB> characters,
that you don't have strange end of line characters (ie not edited
under windoze), or that you've missed to fill in something meaningful
in every field (even if it just a dash).
You can check whether I'm on the right track here by simply disabling
the filetype checks... clear out the setting for the file command
File Command = #/usr/bin/file
and restart MailScanner... If I'm right, the error you see should go away.
If it does, either consider not using that, or grab a new copy of the
filetype.rules.conf and start over:-).
