Hi all,

I read in the MailScanner.conf file that it is not possible to set
soft links for

Incoming Work Dir
Quarantine Dir

but....I set a soft link in those directives and so in the log I get

"Your "Incoming Work Directory" should be specified as an absolute
path, not including any links. But I will work okay anyway"

Mailscanner is working ok. Now the questions are: what problems could
I have with this configuration?
What problems could rise with soft links?

Best regards.
