well I could if I knew where and how on a cobalt without breaking it - I'm
presuming that turning it off is something within Sendmail not mailscanner
as I didn't see anything in the conf file.

The clock issue is an odd one - I've just restarted Mailscanner again and I
notice its putting a different time into the log than the system time which
is weird in itself
