This alert was sent because GWAVA tried processing a message that was not formatted correctly and didn't follow SMTP specs. These are usually spam messages. Because of this, the ctengine programs throws an error. This shouldn't cause any issues, and can be ignored. The message doesn't get scanned for spam, but does get scanned for the other events.
