Ouch.. That's *not* a good thing....

This means that when SA was configured, it found perl version 5.6.1. When
MailScanner was run, it was run under version 5.8.0.

Perhaps you should do some digging and find out why two different perl
versions exist on your server, and properly re-install SA under the version
of perl you want to use.
