Put simply, no. Just adjust the MailScanner.conf file for Postfix using
the directions you have found (Check to see which version of Postfix you
have installed, if it's 2.2.x then you will need some new files to
accommodate the slight change in queue structure (Post back and I'll
point you in the right direction)). I don't know how old the MailScanner
version is in the unstable tree, so it would be worth check that also.
