Cool Report: MailScanner: Message attempted to kill MailScanner

Hi there.

After my install for the spamspanke for ubuntu-jeos-10.10-maverick-meerkat guide. I receive many of these emails and some users mails appear to be wrongly blocked.

Report: MailScanner: Message attempted to kill MailScanner

I googled and found some mention of winmail.dat i tried changing a few things but the message persists and users emails are being blocked.

Anyone have this issue?

Thanks!

What do you have in your clamav.log?

Do the mails have any documents attached?

Also, check to see if the hard drive is full.

hmm which clam should be installed. I may have an extra version installed. I would like to clean this up and ensure clam os correctly linked. Perhaps I should redo that section.

root@belatrix:~# dpkg --get-selections | grep -i clam
clamav install
clamav-base install
clamav-daemon install
clamav-freshclam install
libclamav6 install
