Ok I finally got it working, thanks for the general outlay Julian. And thanks for such a great project.
Gentoo users, just in case you're new, you need to place this file in the /etc/init.d/ dir, give it a chmod 755 and then add it to the startup.I name the file mailscanner  so
rc-update add mailscanner

and remember to stop sendmail fromstarting up

rc-update del sendmail

have fun
