I just upgraded my RedHat 7.3 box from Mailscanner 3 to Mailscanner 4.

When installing I got an error message:
package perl-MIME-Base64-2.12-14 (which is newer than perl-MIME-Base64-2.12-1)
Which version is better?

And when I try to restart MailScanner it gives this output:

[root at linuxgw rules]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/MailScanner restart
Shutting down MailScanner daemons:
         MailScanner:       We haven't got any child processes, which
isn't right!, No child processes at /usr/sbin/MailScanner line 191.
We have just tried to reap a process which wasn't one of ours!, No child
processes at /usr/sbin/MailScanner line 194.
                                                           [  OK  ]
         incoming sendmail:                                [  OK  ]
         outgoing sendmail:                                [  OK  ]

A simple MailScanner stop and then start does work correctly without
any errors?!?
