"Could not analyze message" errors?

Thanks for the reply Julian, it's currently "TNEF Expander =
/usr/bin/tnef --maxsize=100000000"

Just so I can be prepared, should there be any adverse consequences from
changing it to internal, what's the difference please?

MailScanner is 4.69.9.

Regarding A/V we're using clamav via the clamd module.

What's your "TNEF Expander" setting? If it isn't set to "internal" then 
try that first.
