Um, AFAICS that would require the file "status" to be an alternative
MailScanner.conf ... Probably not what you want;-).

If BlueQuartz is anything like an RH system you might be after the
"service" command(?)...
service MailScanner status
which would run the init-script (perhaps situated in
/etc/init.d/MailScanner) with the status option... Would be equivalent
/etc/init.d/MailScanner status
assuming, of course, that /etc/init.d is the path to the init-scripts:-).

Using ps ("ps xww|grep MailScanner|grep -v grep") or reading the mail
log would be better indicators as to whether it works or not.

BTW, I read the list, so no need to mail me directly;-).
