    we just recently installed the most recent MailScanner/ClamAv with Exim(the most recent Exim Version),
    and now noticed this warning in all our emails that go through our server,
    below is an example of the email header:
    Code:
    Delivered-to: [email]mickalo@frontiernet.net[/email]
    Received: (qmail 28028 invoked from network); 19 Mar 2004 21:46:19 -0000

    I am referring to the X-Mail-Format-Warning in the headers now,
    and it causes some strange emails in Outlook Express, displaying all the X-AntiAbuse headings in the body of the emails.

    Is there something we need to change in the exim.conf or MailScanner conf to fix these X-Mail-Format-Warning ??

    Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated :)

    TIA

    Go on, have a guess
    It loks like your problem is here:

    X-Apexbilling Systems-MailScanner

    This is presumably the header field you're using in MailScanner.conf (probably in the &org-name% field).

    Mail header fields cannot contain whitespaces, so you need to change it to something like:

    X-ApexbillingSystems-MailScanner

    So, edit MailScanner.conf and change:

    %org-name% = Apexbilling Systems

    to:

    %org-name% = ApexbillingSystems

    It does actually say "# RULE: It must not contain any spaces!" just above that setting too ;)
