Ok. No probleme with you hardware (There are sometimes issues with low RAM).

OK. I don't see something, many settings are disabled.
You enabled only clamav with P3scan, and not spamassassin.

Please can you check if when P3scan hangs is ~ at the same time that Clamav updates ?

Regards.

Have a try with increasing timeout in P3scan.conf file.

Yes.
If you wish to use POP3S without filtering, you only need to enable SSL in the settings of your email client.

UPDATE

I've bought a 16GB CF card for the firewall, installed ipcop IPCop v2.1.9 and copfilter 2.1.93beta1 in ENGLISH (previously it was in italian).
P3scan worked for something more than 4 hours and after that it stopped working.
Can it be that the installation of ipcop is set in HARD DISK mode rather than FLASH mode?

Thanks

No. The only changes between hard and flash mod is for the logs.With flash mode, IPCop changes its file system attributes so that the last file access time is not recorded on the flash's simulated hard drive. Logs files are kept on a ram disk. The logs are compressed weekly, at shutdown and when the ram disk begins to fill up.

For your issue, did you modify some file (mailscanner.sh file, for example) ?

UPDATE

after creating a new mail server the problem has not yet shown in 5 hours, let's hope it works now.

Thanks for the help

***EDIT***

seems to be working fine now, you can close the topic, thanks again!
