Either your quarantining or notifications is configured to feed mail
to a pipe to some external program, which gives up receiving a message
and closes the connection.

Check your *_quarantine_method and $notify_method settings.

If feeding to an external program through a pipe is intentional,
check why such external program gives up (closes or crashes).
