Hi Mailscanner Friends,

i think i'am affected by an old issue. I am getting spammed from MailScanner Alert every hour because one email is not processed correctly:


	Subject: Problem Messages 


	Number of messages: 1 

	Tries Message Last Tried 

	===== ======= ========== 

	6 11A003C0065.AC53F Fri May 10 08:56:07 2019 



Now I deleted already this (definitively spam) Mail 11A003C0065.AC53F from /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/* where I found it stored, and made:

- stop mailscanner
- delete /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/Processing.db
- start mailscanner 

but it does not help. Watching inside of this file "Processing.db" with "strings Processing.db" after delete & restart shows me still this Message ID. 

	From where is MailScanner getting this information that this ID is not processed corretly but i deleted already Processing.db? I cannot find the source of this information. Unfortunately i am still getting spammed every hour by mailscanner --processing hourly cronjob for days now, getting crazy :-)
