The processing database (Processing.db) file is in constant use by
MailScanner. It was recreated with the first message that arrived after
you removed it. Normally, messages are entered into the processing
database and removed after being processed by MailScanner. It's only
when MailScanner has difficulty with a message that it gets left in the
database and reported.
