    Hi everyone, I've had Mailscanner going on my server for about 6 months now and am very pleased by the vast amounts of spam that do not make it to my inbox :). The only problem I have is that every now and again the Mailscanner children in Mailwatch die and then I have to go into the frontend settings and click "Change" to restart the service so it can start processing email again.

    My question is...can't I turn this type of thing into a cronjob, or was it supposed to be setup to restart automatically when I purchased the package off of chirpy's site?

    Thank you,

    Omar

    Your MailScanner.conf should have this line:

    # To avoid resource leaks, re-start periodically
    Restart Every = 14400
