MailScanner & Spamassassin install problems on a RaQ550

Thanks Julian that worked,

I figured turning off the SMTP server through the GUI would disable
Sendmail.  But I guess MailScanner is taking care of the service now.

Is there anything I need to watch out for now that I am not using the GUI to
control Sendmail (besides having to manually configure any sendmail config
changes) like Cobalt updates, other services not working properly?

Tell the RaQ GUI that it is not a mail server. This will stop it
continuously switching its sendmail setup back on.
