I'm trying to get MailScanner to work

List of stuff so far:

I installed red hat 9 gui without spamassassin and with sendmail
Installed the development tools Installed mailscanner using ./install.sh
I edited the mailertable file with this:
woodmaclaw.com          esmtp:[]
www.woodmaclaw.com              esmtp:[]

Then this: make -C /etc/mail

Then made sure that the /etc/mail/relay-domains was empty or did not
have woodmaclaw in it.

That's it so far and no worky.
What do you think?

Also it seems that I read that if you don't set virus scan = none if you
have none that the email won't get delivered, is that true?

Thank You
Billy Pumphrey

I think there's an RPM called "rpm-build" or something like that.
that for starters. You should have installed the development tools when
installed RH9.
