    Same problem here. I have the followings set...

    Deliver Disinfected Files = no
    Still Deliver Silent Viruses = no
    Deliver Cleaned Messages = no
    Notify Senders = no
    Send Notices = no

    ...and restarted exim and bind BUT STILL receiving hundreds of notices.

    You said restart mailscanner. I believe MailScanner is tied to exim so restarting exim will do the work.

    Any ideas why I am still getting the notices??? Anyone? :confused:

    For some reason, MailScanner is ignoring those settings, as I have done it too to try and make them go away. Not sure how Nick has this thing implemented. Its very irritating.

    You will have to restart MailScanner... Restarting Exim does not have an effect on MailScanner..

    MailScanner ignore the new settings because you did not restatart it.

    I am not sure how you can restart the MailScanner installed from the Auto-Installer .. using my How-To you can restart MailScanner using:
    service MailScanner restart
    or
    /etc/init.d/MailScanner restart

    The MailScanner from the Auto-Installer restarts itself every 4 hours. It will pick up the changes when it restarts. I haven't tried it, but I suspect it can be restarted with:

    killall -9 MailScanner
    /usr/mailscanner/bin/check_mailscanner

    I'll explain why mine didn't work at first. I do not know if this will apply to any of you.

    I had insatlled MailScanner manually from another HOWTO about two weeks before cPanel came out with it. I thought I had sidabled the old when and proceeded to install the new one, but turns out I was running some kind of weird hybrid of the two.

    I spent a fair amount of time digging around and removing all the references to the old files and the files themselves. Once I did this, I started MailScanner as indicated in this thread, and everything is working and the emails are all gone.

    Big thanks to mmkassem for leading me to find a pretty big flow in our server.

    I Did the exact same thing as you, installing mailscanner manually before this auto installer came out, then i installed this on top of it

    Do you think you could pm me or something with the exact steps you took to remove the old one?

    thanks

    Mine seems to be working perfectly now. I think it takes a while for MailScanner to pick up the changes in the config.

    Well, I did a search to see everywhere mailscanner was. In mine, the old installation was in /etc/MailScanner whereas the cpanel one is in /usr/local/mailscanner. So, I killed everything in /etc/MailScanner and then I removed the service entry using chkconfig because the cpanel one does not use a service entry. Then I rebooted to server to make sure i did not kill anything bad.

    I figured if I overkilled it, I could simply reinstall, but fortunately I did not have to put it to the test. :)
