On my mail server, I am using sendmail as transport agent procmail to
deliver the mail to the final user mailbox.

Procmail runs the mail trough SpamAssassin, and it some time happens
that teh SpamAssassin process goes to the wild. I have seen that
happening when the user disk is over quota for example, or when some
of the SpamAssassin user's file get corrupted.

In that case, SpamAssassin process will never end until it is manually

I am wondering what happens to the message that was being processed:
it was already out of sendmail, so will it be bounced anyway, or will
it be lost (bad bad).
