I changed a rule in that was different from the
"publicidad" one.
I deleted the last modification and MCP worked again.

I'll check my rules again, but I still would like to know if MCP is
failing because of a bad syntax of rules.
Do I must enable debug mode or something similar in MailScanner to find
this kind of errors?
