Feature Request - Include: <file>

I'm running MailScanner on a Solaris system, so the "service MailScanner
reload" is not available but I should be able to script something similar.

Just to be sure, do all the processes need to HUP'd?  or just the parent?

After you have cated them together, do a "service MailScanner reload" which
will "kill -HUP" all the MailScanner processes causing them to immediately
re-configure themselves using the latest configuration files.
