[Mimedefang] Problem with multipart/alternative

The permissions and ownerships on the folders look OK to me, and the
fact that the Work folder is created correctly is a good sign that all
is well with the file system.

One thought -

The incoming file is a Windows video - the size is likely to be large,
so is this problem only happening with attachments over a certain size? 
Could it be filling the spool disk, or hitting a limit somewhere?

Also, beware of on-access virus scanning if you have it enabled, as the
A/V scans can delete infected files before MD manages to open them,
giving this sort of error.

Best Wishes,
