I am having a problem getting the latest release of MailScanner up and running.

My system is running RedHat 8.0, and included in it is sendmail-8.12.5.

Here is what I get when I try to start MailScanner.

[root at Panther root]# cd /
[root at Panther /]# service MailScanner start
Starting MailScanner daemons:
         incoming sendmail: [  OK  ]
         outgoing sendmail: [  OK  ]
         MailScanner:       Can't locate MIME/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/MailScanner /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl . /usr/lib/MailScanner) at /usr/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/ line 39.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/sbin/MailScanner line 46.
[  OK  ]
[root at Panther /]# 

What am I doing wrong here?
