I had MailScanner 4.23.11 running on my RH 8.0 box. Since RH8.0 isn't
supported any longer, I finally upgraded to RH9.  After the upgrade, I added
all the eratta and security fixes.  When I restarted RH9, MailScanner failed.

Here is what I'm seeing.

Starting MailScanner daemons:
         incoming sendmail:                                [  OK  ]
         outgoing sendmail:                                [  OK  ]
         MailScanner:       Can't locate MIME/ in @INC (@INC

I downloaded 4.25-14 and a number of items failed including Mailtools and MIME
parser, TNEF.

Any hints where I can start to fix this?
