this morning I had a weird situation as I discovered mailscanner was stopped (was so since yesterday afternoon, no reason found but in any case config file empty, no rules anymore, just a dead duck). Forced a re install, then forced rules etc to get it back up and running.

Luckily server retained all the mails in queue all that time so nothing was lost. Though all root mails were also queued, hence why I didn't get any notification mailscanner was down.

Is there maybe some way to create a bypass for root mails ?
some kinda rule saying : mailscanner stopped -> open bypass only for root generated mails, mailscanner comes up -> close bypass

this way we do get the warnings from service manager telling mailscanner is down ...
