Mailscanner loops stops processing emails.

OK, I will give that a go.
I've changed in mailscanner - Maximum Processing Attempts = 0
And now I've changed this in clamd.conf -
It was set to 10 minutes and I think it just restarts itself, then mailscanner cannot find the socket and starts complaining. I'll give it more time and see if the errors persist.
Since disabling the processing attempts I see no mail looping (Yay). From reading an old thread from Julian, it is off by default. I don't really understand what it does.

You can try using clamscan not clamd or clamdscan.
clamscan works not so fast - it loads virus database each time it started, but you can obtain reliability this way. You can decrease number of MailScanner child processes to decrease system load.

| I tried using the .3 version but it doesn't compile for me either. I'm waiting for the .4 version to become available in the
freebsd ports. I'm not sure it's going to fix my problem through.
| I would say it's a permission problem but it works most of the time, so could it be?
| When I get a heavy load like a ddos or something, it breaks. Clamd crashes and then restarts, processes some mail but then crashes
again. Since I changed the Processing db to 0 I don't get this loop any more, so I'm happy now, but I really want to try and fix the
clamd crashing problems.
| I will continue to debug clamd.
