The above are entries in MailScanner's Processing.db. They represent
messages that encountered some fatal exception during processing. They
were retried 6 times and then the message was quarantined and the
Processing.db entry moved from the processing table to the archive
table. There was log information (probably MailScanner entries in
/var/log/maillog) at the time that would indicate what the error was.
You will see these if you still have logs back to October. You can also
find the quarantined messages if your quarantine goes back that far.
You can just remove /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/Processing.db and
MailScanner will recreate it. See
and other messages in that thread.
