Hmm OK seeing a few of the below in my Postmaster inbox.
Doing a grep of the logs shows this:
May 9 17:03:19 relay postfix/cleanup: 8BE611FCC8:
message-id=<06A07D7DB16C417C8990A7FACEE37518 at Desktop>

May 9 17:27:30 relay MailScanner: Warning: skipping message
8BE611FCC8.A5E8C as it has been attempted too many times
May 9 17:27:30 relay MailScanner: Quarantined message
8BE611FCC8.A5E8C as it caused MailScanner to crash several times
May 9 17:27:30 relay MailScanner: Saved entire message to
Using 4.76.24 on CentOS 5.3.
Not sure where to begin on this one - basic background is we have
MailScanner in production and have done for years and I've not seen this
before, seems to only affect a single message out of the thousands
in/out we deal with.
Any help would be much appreciated.
