Julian, thanks for your help!  I think I may have tracked down the cause of the problem - I made some changes just before 5pm which so far seem to be working.  I'll need to wait until mid-morning tomorrow to be sure (when theres a decent volume of mail flowing through the server).  I won't post the details now as its a bit involved & I may not be right - but I will post a follow-up tomorrow.

P.S. My fallback plan was to swap in an old server rebuilt with MailScanner 4.10 - and you might be interested to know about a problem I had installing the rpms under Mandrake 9.0...
(apart from the rpm-build and perl-devel dependencies which I had to work out for myself)  The rpms have a dependency on perl-5.800 but mandrake chose to name their perl package perl-5.8.0, thus the installation fails on this dependency.  I simply satisfied myself that I had the necessary packages installed and added --nodeps into the appropriate place in the script.  I suspect theres no easy 'proper' fix, but maybe an argument to the script to try a nodeps installation?
