Spamguardian failure

I migrated accounts from one Plesk server to another using their cool migration feature. Everything worked swimingly apart from the fact that no mail was being delivered.

A quick look through the logs revealed this in /var/log/messages:
Nov ** **:**:** servername livesguardian(7032): Failed running maildir
I had a look on Google and found no help. Trying to run the command "maildir" on the server resulted in a "no such file" error. Comparing directory listings of other servers, I noticed that /usr/bin/maildir didn't exist! I have no idea why, so decided to copy the maildir binary from the other server.

All is working swimingly now.

Hey! we got the same problem on our server. you need to install the safecat version from 4psa and after that reinstall the spamguardian.

spamguardian also needs ia32-libs incase you're running an amd64 system

have fun :-)
