I am unable to duplicate this exactly, so I can't help much, but in
another post you said

If you are thinking of "Maximum Attachment Size", thois is OK, but if
you really mean "Maximum Attachments Per Message", there is no
"unlimited" value, but '-1' might be interpreted as a very large,
unsigned number, so it might be OK.

What does MailScanner log in the mail log for this message?
