It works now, thanks! Notes on how I got MS 4.12 rpm version to work
with Exim with Trustix 1.5:
1. The MS rpm installs fine. Very slick Julian!
2. Even though I set "Outgoing Queue Dir = /var/spool/exim/input", MS
complained about " MailScanner: Error in configuration file line
72, directory /var/spool/mqueue for outqueuedir does not exist (or is
not readable)". I changed OutQueueDir in
/usr/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/ConfigDefs.pl from /var/spool/mqueue to
3. Changed ownership of /var/spool/MailScanner queues back to exim.exim
4. Made a bunch of changes to /etc/init.d/MailScanner to reflect mostly
Exim requirements and some Trustix specifics. I've attached the file.
With minor modifications, it also works on Redhat 7.3/Exim.
5. Previously installed Sophos 3.65 and Spamassassin 2.42 works fine.
Thanks for a great product!
