Am i doing something silly here.

got just simple things like microsoft test messages not getting through 

From: Microsoft Outlook <email at address>
To: =?utf-8?B?Qnlyb24gUHVsbA==?= <email at address>
Subject: =?utf-8?B?TWljcm9zb2Z0IE91dGxvb2sgVGVzdCBNZXNzYWdl?=
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/html;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit
X-Authenticated-As: domain
X-OriginalSMTPIP: IP
Smarthost: IP

This is an e-mail message sent automatically by Microsoft Outlook while 
testing the settings for your account.

The above is the full message - the last 3 headers are once our smtp 
authentication array add in.

The user gets a bounce back with

Subject: Warning: E-mail error detected

If i do the following from:
[root at 6 D4E051314.AFA80]# cp message 
[root at 6 D4E051314.AFA80]# MailScanner --debug --id=D4E051314.AFA80
In Debugging mode, not forking...
Trying to setlogsock(unix)
Building a message batch to scan...
(it just sits here - doesnt actually do anything else - this is a 
postfix installation)

Thanks for any help.
