Hi Martin

No, I'm not running the -U switch.  Will that show me what's going on
with MailScanner in maillog?

Got another rogue message today.  Paypal account locked out type spam.
 It's this particular spam message that caused the problems several
months ago and led to me writing a script to monitor messages stuck in
the inbound queue.

I've been monitoring since November with no alerts until 2 days ago.
