Found the problem. The startup script that I got refers to mailscanner in
lowercase. The script is running as MailScanner

changing this: killproc mailscanner
to this: killproc MailScanner

Also updating in status area of script worked as well. Things now stop
correctly and report status properly.

I have been changing config files and restarting and assuming that the
mailscanner service was stopping and starting. Turns out it was not. I have
insatlled 4.11-1 from source on my box. Does someone have a script that

I have already tried the one listed on the website oldnews section and it
does not stop the process. Just reports failed.

Any help appreciated.
