Off Topic: Tom: Did that qmail patch for simscan work for you when

simscan takes to long to get back to the remote server and the
remote server times out ?)
I thought it did, but I just got a message that seems to indicate
that it didn't. Someone emailing me got this error:
Message delivery to the host '220.127.116.11' failed while delivering
to the remote domain 'domain.com' for the following reason: The
semaphore timeout period has expired.
I checked my logs, and the virus scan took 12 seconds. Most of that
(11s) was scanning the msg file, so I assume it took another 11s to
ripmime it before calling clamav. I guess 23 seconds is a long time
to wait for a response after ending the DATA part of an SMTP
It could just be a bad timing thing where the other end drops the
connection and simscan replies that it was received OK before it
knows the connection closed.
It might need some further testing by the simscan developers to find
additional failure points.
