I had that problem also when I had timeouts. It seems that when spamassassin
times out, it never gets to the cleanup stage. I don't know if it is a
spamassassin issue or a MailScanner issue, but the real problem is the
timeouts. Cleaning the temp files over a few hours old by mtime should be
safe. or over 24 hours old should be very safe.
Fixing the timeouts should be a priority, as any timed out messages will get
into your users. MailScanner passes the timed out scans because Julian wanted
no mail lost by errors like this.
MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
