Qmail & qmail-scanner


I havent had much luck with getting replies on this forum but I'll try again:

I've got qmail installed with

I've got the qmailqueue patch & installed

the test script that comes with works fine

but when i put the line:

into my tcp.smtp file and then cdb it in qmail I get no incoming mail - and no mailer-daemon replies from the email accounts that sent them..
without the QMAILQUEUE variable in the tcp.smtp the email is delivered fine, but, it obviously doesn't use the scanner patch and therefore doesnt go through anti-virus or spamassassin

i have a hunch it has something to do with the alternative setup that has you setup, but i just cant find the culprit

thanks in advance

oh, and if you have no clue - could you please at least suggest some places to go for help besides the qmail-scanner or the qmail mail subscription lists...

Well I fixed it.

Just fyi for anyone interested:

smtpd's log said it couldnt find the qmail-scanner file quarantine-attachments
well the directory it was looking in has a quarantine-attachments.txt and .db so i just made a symbolic link to the .txt and voila - all the messages flooded in, virus and spam scanned
