Hi,

I have a Sendmail installation running ony two milters, milter-sender
to help me stop SPAM and clamav-milter to block viruses. Sometimes,
I see events like these in my maillog:

Oct  5 13:17:09 amidala sendmail[74388]: i95GDJBo074388: Milter
(milter-sender): write(Q) returned -1, expected 5: Broken pipe
Oct  5 13:17:09 amidala sendmail[74388]: i95GDJBo074388: Milter
(milter-sender): to error state

What does it mean exactly? What is happening? Is milter-sender not
being able to handle all mail traffic? Is there any way to increase
milter-sender capacities to avoid this kind of errors?

Thanks in advance for your attention.
