I'm not at all convinced this will work, but give it a try:
Write a very short script that sets these variables and then calls
sendmail, something like this
and then call this script in MailScanner instead of directly invoking
sendmail. You should just edit the "Sendmail =" setting in MailScanner.conf
to refer to your script instead of sendmail itself.
See what happens with this setup.
