Hello list,

I'm trying to install Mailscanner on an Debian Stable server, and i cannot
install Perl 5.6.  Is Perl 5.6 really needed? Or can i use Perl
5.0 also (with all the broken dependecies, than)?

It seems to be a problem with Debian; Perl could only be upgraded with a
dist-upgrade(?).... I've read a post in the archive from Nick Phillips
about the installation of MailScanner on a Debian Stable Box (installing
libmime-perl and libio-stringy-perl), but i can't find out how to install
Perl 5.6 . If it's needed, anyway...
