Hey Matt,
I sit next to Leland.  We had the same situation thus, I went through and 
commented out the unnecessary lines in /etc/init.d/MailScanner.  I'm 
embarrassed to post this for the code is not cleaned up but, it works.  Note, 
we made changes to the two variables WORKDIR+INQDIR so you will need to 
modify those.
