This is as a result of changes to the RPM file that other people asked me
to make. As you have customised the mailscanner.conf file, you will now
have a "mailscanner.conf.rpmnew" file in your /usr/local/MailScanner/etc
directory. You need to copy your modifications from the old one to the new
one and then rename it over the top of the old one (so you now have a
mailscanner.conf file with all the new keywords in it).

Would people prefer to use the new system, or go back to the old one where
it renamed all your files to ".rpmold" or ".rpmorig" and then copied in the
new ones to their default location?

Or else I could take a look for any *.rpmnew files in
/usr/local/MailScanner/etc and print another warning message if there were
any, prompting you to copy your customizations into the new config files?
