The message comes from /usr/sbin/processing_messages_alert which is run

"Processing Attempts Database" setting (default =
The messages were probably abandoned after 6 failed attempts (Maximum
Processing Attempts = 6). See the MailScanner log messages (probably in

If these are the only messages in the processing database, I think you
