The init.d scripts need to be different for all the different versions of
The best way to check it has all stopped completely is to do a
ps ax | grep mail
This will show up MailScanner and sendmail processes, and of course there
should be none when MailScanner is completely stopped.
If you see any processes (apart from the "grep mail" process) then you can
just kill them.
