Mailscanner cron install files

It was the check_MailScanner that got me.  I know to check these now I'm
just stating my preference.  It's not a big deal but I prefer to
manually install cron files since it runs everything as root.

Hmm, /etc/cron.daily/clean.quarantine is disabled by default,
/etc/cron.hourly/update_virus_scanners just updates virus scanners.
check_MailScanner tries to run MailScanner, that's the problem?
It would be better to solve it somehow, but I'd still like these files
to be installed like they are now.
