There is a problem with mailscanner and the 0.94 clamscan. There is a patch 
floating on the mailing list, or you can load the next beta, which might have 
the patch in it.

Or better yet, run clamd and use it. It is much faster, and has a lower system 

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