You need an init.d script, which you can base on the one used on your
system to start sendmail. You need to start a sendmail -bd with all the
relevant options as dictated by the MailScanner installation guide on the
web site. You should also start a sendmail -q15m to run the outgoing queue.
Then you should run check_mailscanner to actually start up MailScanner itself.

What operating system and version are you using? What version of
MailScanner are you using? How and where did you install MailScanner?
