Look for traces of the messages in your mail logs. That will tell you
what happened. You might then want to try digging the messages out of
quarantine and running them through MailScanner manually (start with
"MailScanner --help" and work from there) one at a time to see what goes
If you want to wipe the database you can always just delete it. Its
location in set in MailScanner.conf (look for "Processing.db" in there).
Also, the fact that they have been the cause of these problems means
that they were never delivered, so you may want to take a look at them
and figure out if they were important and what you might want to do
This is usually quite a bad sign that you have messages which are
killing MailScanner this many times.
