the server at responds to ping, but hasn't been
accepting port 80 connects since 27 March.

Thanks for the tip about I replaced with in my ScamNailer script and
in /usr/sbin/update_bad_phishing_sites and they are working now.

Note that Kai Schaetzl's post in another thread about
safe.phishing.sites ( ?) doesn't seem to apply to me
as /usr/sbin/update_phishing_sites gets its data from which still
works for me.

Also note that the standard MailScanner configuration includes

Web Bug Replacement =

which may cause issues with email that has a web bug disarmed. This too
can be changed to

Web Bug Replacement =

or that can be put in a file in /etc/MailScanner/conf.d.
