You can use MailScanner --debug-sa


Or if you search for 'debug' in Mailscanner.conf then you can turn it on.


Or you can run the spamassassin command with the -D -lint flags.


spamassassin -D -lint

As per the spamassain docs , I got to know  that after every 100th spam
message, when the next message which will be 101 would be consider as spam.
Is that true. 


Below phrases, from the webiste


If I've handed 100 messages to sa-learn that have the phrase penis
enlargement and told it that those are all spam, when the 101st message
comes in with the words penis and enlargment, the Bayesian classifier will
be pretty sure that the new message is spam and will increase the spam score
of that message. 


Also I have noticed that my mailscanner gets crash after processing few
number of emails,  and also to legimate messages it consdiering and spam and
keeping t all of them  into Qurantine directory.. 



Any help would be highly apprecitaed ,


Thanks so much in advance

Our mail scanners have started behaving very strange. It's not processing g
any emails anymore only saying for each mail in the queue and with the below



Our setup,



Sep 20 14:38:15 mx3 MailScanner[2282]: Warning: skipping message
p8JHBZlF011310 as it has been attempted too many times
Sep 20 14:38:15 mx3 MailScanner[2282]: Quarantined message p8JHBZlF011310 as
it caused MailScanner to crash several times
Sep 20 14:38:15 mx3 MailScanner[2282]: Saved entire message to

1. MailScanner --lint  (reports  below problem)

> ERROR: The "envelope_sender_header" in your spam.assassin.prefs.conf
> ERROR: is not correct, it should match X-mydomain-MailScanner-From

2. spamassassin -lint (silently comes to next prompt)


Any help would highly appreciated.
