This is scaled by mailscanner-mrtg itself so needs to be altered in the
mailscanner-mrtg script.

Assuming you are running the latest version...

Find the following fragment in /usr/sbin/mailscanner-mrtg (around line

if ($_[0] =~ /mailbytes/){
    # Mod to convert in MB
    $Total /= 1024 * 1024;

And change it to...

if ($_[0] =~ /mailbytes/){
    # Mod to convert in MB
    $Total /= 1024;

You'll also need to change the mrtg cfg lines in
/etc/mrtg/mailscanner-mrtg.cfg (about line 36 onwards...) - hopefully
this should be fairly obvious (ustb turn all refernces to Mbytes in

I hope to find a more graceful solution to this issue for the next
