I am running fully updated CentOS 4 for x86_64 on a relatively clean install.  
I have installed Cyrus-IMAPD and sendmail using yum and have the two working 
sending and receiving mail.  I downloaded the Mailscanner install package and 
ran the installation.  All seemed to proceed normally, the vast majority of 
the packages tested ok and all of the rpm's seemed to compile and install, 
the mailscanner rpm did not complain when it installed.

However, when I try and start Mailscanner with service MailScanner start I get 
the following:

I did not experience this when installing with the same OS i386 version on 
another machine.  I have googled this extensively and posted on the CentOS 
board with no response.  I have also attempted to rebuild the rpms with 
rpm-build and install them by hand.  This seemed to work but got the same 
result in the end.
