I just copied /usr/local/MailScanner/etc to /etc/MailScanner, did a
search/replace in mailscanner.conf to reflect the changes, then edited
check_mailscanner.linux to use the new mailscanner.conf
I also changed the Pid file to /var/run/virus.pid

I saw something similar and got it happening, except it leaves the empty
daily dirs in place. Apart from that, I don't have any other need to work
