Don't worry about MIME-tools not finding MIME::Base64. When run from
within MailScanner it will find it. Due to RPM packaging problems with
RedHat, I have to install MIME::Base64 in a different location, which
MailScanner knows about.
This is why the installation of MIME-tools complained, while
"MailScanner -v" is quite happy.
If you want to get rid of this warning, then
perl -MCPAN -e 'install MIME::Base64'
