>The fact that I had clean mail for a day after tweaking MailScanner the
other day could back that up, but by rights it shouldn't be so: the init
script for sendmail is still in /etc/init.d, but it's disabled. When I
view the init script in Webmin it says it's running, but I'm pretty sure
this is correct behaviour as the same thing happens on my other box.
It's possible some cron job is playing feck with it, but it doesn't seem
to be logrotate and I'm not sure what else it could be. I'll poke
around, see what jumps out at me.
