avastfilter: Too much 'From: ' headers in the message header
« on: November 26, 2010, 06:29:46 PM »
Hi,

I have avast4linux and avast4mail (and libavastengine) on a gentoo-machine with qmail.

I found the following in my logs:

What does "Too much 'From: ' headers in the message header" mean? How can I solve this?

Greetings!

Hallo, it means just what it says - there were more than one "From:" field in the header - which is strange anyway (just check the particular mail).
