Hi there,

I have started having a problem where it seems mailscanner is locking the server.

after a reboot all is well then the problem re manifests itself. as below

A child process starts. > CPU goes nuts over 3.00, process is hogging all CPU time this goes on until I notice that its happenign or until for some strange reason MYSQL crashes ???

All the settings were the same since it was installed for me by Chirpy's company, i have lowered max child processes to 1 now but it still happens :( I have currently disabled it in the FE until I can work out the exact problem.

I upgraded to the latest version of all chirpy's scripts today but its still happening.

To be honest I cant say 100% that this is a mailscanner bug but it is always there hogging the CPU when sql crashes and then I have to reboot.

Any advice on which logs to look in to find the reason for this happening?

TY
