Ok that brings me to the next question, in the install.FREEBSD it says
to add certain lines to /etc/rc.conf

# MailScanner starts here
mta_start_script="/opt/MailScanner/bin/rc.MailScanner start"
# MailScanner ends here

Thats what my rc.conf looks like, should i make sendmail_enable=NO ?

And then allow mailscanner to start it ?
