MailScanner ANNOUNCE: 4.82 stable released

Wed Feb 16 19:53:56 GMT 2011
I'm using Debian Squeeze's Postfix 2.7.1-1.
I've changed MessageBatch.pm's code to show with what ID happens and:
# /opt/MailScanner/bin/MailScanner --debug
CombineReports OK ID: C055D2A0015.00000
CombineReports OK ID: 3CE502A004D.00000
Can't call method "CombineReports" on unblessed reference at
/opt/MailScanner/lib/MailScanner/MessageBatch.pm line 737.
The difference is that ".message" attached to the ID.
Then, in /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming I do:
# find . | grep C39622A000A.00000
./26092/C39622A000A.00000/nLOOKING FOR A FOREIGN PARTNER.rtf
./26540/C39622A000A.00000/nLOOKING FOR A FOREIGN PARTNER.rtf
./26779/C39622A000A.00000/nLOOKING FOR A FOREIGN PARTNER.rtf
The message from that incoming directory, can be downloaded here:
