You have 4 options
a. Use a MS + sendmail/postfix front-end server to the qmail server (will 
require extra hardware).
b. Use MS + sendmail/postfix on the same server and change the port for 
qmail to a different one (say 2525)
c. Use Openprotect, they do a decent job for qmail integration. I also run 
at least 4 of them with qmail.
d. See for 
instructions on manually integrating qmail with MailScanner. 

hope that helps,
