To use it, should I just drop it in cron.daily like Sophos.autoupdate?

The RPM update insists in installing MailTools-1.1401 even if a more recent
version (1.46) is already installed.
This does not happen for IO::Stringy, where the installed 2.108 version is
not overwritten by the 1.211 version contained in the RPM distribution.
Is there a way to avoid this downgrade?

MIME::Tools is also always reinstalled, even if you got the patched version
with MailScanner 3.20-4, but I know that this is necessary because you can't
distinguish the patched version from the orginal one from the version number.

BTW, I'm using Perl 5.005_3 and RPM 4.02 on a RH6.2 system
