Morning chaps,

a bit more info - this was working OK and domain has been successfully
scanned for a number of months but it stopped scanning over the
weekend.  Its a distributed setup (3 servers + db) and it appears that
all servers are dropping the domain from the scan.  S/A scores are
zero on all scans, there's nothing whitelisted that I can see, I run
MailWatch and the messages for this domain are all classed as clean.
The only time i've seen this before is when the domain is listed in
the /etc/MailScanner/rules/scan.messages.rules file - it is not listed
in this case though.

MailScanner --to or to MailScanner --to
user at doesn't return anything at all on any of the nodes.
It seems to be affecting this domain globally but for no apparent
reason, all others are OK though.
Domains are stored in a mysql db as are transport maps and users,
postfix reads from the (seperate) db without any problems.

I can't see anything in maillog of relevance and a spamassassin -D
--lint doesn't show any problems, anywhere else i can look?
