Email causing MailScanner to go defunct.

My question seems to have drifted a little off topic :)
I have an postfix queue file (from the hold directory) that causes MS to
fail, is there someway that I could analyze it and provide meaningful
details back to the list/you Julian on why it's causing MS to fails?
Else I could try and email it to you, but that's only if you are
interested ... :)

Thankyou, I was waiting for someone to actually read the conf file and 
post both settings. Thanks mate! :-)
