The path to your config is /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf and the bit
that talks about the command to start the server, leave that blank.

The webmin module isnt very usefull (IMO), i reckon your better off
grabbing the guide on Julian's site for MailScanner.conf and changing
the options manually. Post questions to list if you need help - this way
you will actually learn to administer the software. Just my opinion of
course as a newish user.
