To make it clear, I have a new MailScanner machine (the one that I am
trying to get working) and the one in production that is out of date on

Should I just reinstall sendmail on top of mine or something?  I
installed sendmail by selecting the package when installing centos4.0.
The service appears to be running ok.  I did the ch config that the book

for the services starting (outgoing and incoming sendmail starts fine).
If I look at the running services it has 1 sendmail running (under user
smmsp) which is the one that is suppose to be running isn't it?

I was comparing the service --status-all command between the 2 machines.
The services looks the same as far as MailScanner and sendmail look.
There is a sendmail running on each, and MailScanner running
(MailScanner,incoming sendmail, outgoing sendmail)
