    Go on, have a guess
    That usually means that you either haven't precreated all the required subdirs in /var/spool/exim/input and /var/spool/exim_incomfing/input, or you've deleted them for some reason.

    IF you use my installer, then simply run /usr/mscpanel/mscheck.pl to fix, otherwise you'll have to create them by hand, i.e. a-z A-Z 0-9

    i had this problem too after a server crash and a server reboot... The load was very high on the server and mailscanner wasn't able to scans mail properly. They were added and added and in a few hours, mailscanner had to scans ~200 emails before he scans and scans and delivers the new one... The load problem was solved but the error message was still there...

    I used the upgrade steps from configserver.com website ( Chirpy's website ) and it worked well... The error wasn't there anymore.... The scanning of the messages was faster and in about 60 minutes everything was solved and message was getting out and in like usual...
