Attachment replaced, but no Inline Warning

Have you double checked your MailScanner.conf file?  I believe that there is an option that you can change to fix that.  I will try to pull up ours and see what the option is and attach it in another e-mail.

Subject: Attachment replaced, but no Inline Warning


I have a mail with a trojan, which is received and processed by mailscanner.
The virus is found by clamscan, the attachment is replaced by Attachment-Warning.txt, etc ... everything looks fine, with one exception:

No "Inline Warning" text at the top of the mail.

In every other mail (html or non-html) processed by our MailScanner (file type, file name, virus) a "Inline Warning" is added ... except for this mail.

I've attached the mail (message.txt), version-output, the processed mail
(out.txt) and the maillog as encrypted zip (password: mailscanner), cause I fear, nobody will read this mail, if it contains a plain virus ;-)

Has anybody a idea, why mailscanner can't add a Inline Warning to this email?

Thanks in advance,
