Note that I have changed the default behaviour of upgrade_MailScanner_conf.
It will now replace the comments in your old conf file with the
comments/documentation in the new one. This is so that you get to find out
about any new features and new settings that are now possible with existing
config options. It has become clear recently that people have not
discovered new features due to their old comments/documentation propagating
into the new file from their very old ones.

If you don't like this feature, then just run "upgrade_MailScanner_conf"
and it will tell you how to change it.
