try command "service mailscanner restart" 

And take look at /var/log/syslog 

Is postfix/sendmail/exim running? 

Restart that service as well 
And take look at /var/log/syslog 

Met vriendelijke groet, Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Best regards,

crashing on every message that is thrown at it. MailScanner --lint doesn't 
come up with any error, could that be because of this change?
