    Hi,

    After tonight upcp at 2:53 am my mailscanner stopped working. If you try to restart it, a MailScanner start child process is stuck and never starts but it is using high cpu. All email is stalled in queue. I was on Release and upgraded to Current with no luck. I even reinstalled MailScanner with the full upgrade option, and still the same. Exim log says that mailscanner failed to load.

    Do you have any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Replacing MailScanner with ASSP

    Mailscanner crashing I think is one of the best things that happened to me. That forced us to look into another solution and finally we gave assp a try.

    Resumes to the following:

    cpu lowered by 50%
    load processes lowered by 50%
    memory usage lowered by 20%
    No more delays while delivering to mailbox.
    Less recurring spammers (before, their spam mail was fully accepted, now it is dropped and discouraged at the smtp connection)
    90% less support calls.

    It is a complex product, and for those with MailScanner experience will need to learn a few tricks, but it is worth to try it.
