Sometimes there can be problems if you get an opdate to perl itself or sometimes one of the modules.
The best thing to do initially is to upgrade mailscanner to the latest version. It will upgrade or reinstall any modules that it needs. It also makes it much easier to support if you are running the latest copy.

Hi,

I had to remove some perl modulus before re-installing the latest version of MailScanner that solve the problem.

Thanks for the quick answer,
