Have you considered just upgrading to the latest versions of MailScanner
It might well be the quickest way out of your trouble. But first make
sure /usr/bin/perl points to the latest version of Perl that is
installed on your machine. You don't want to install in 1 perl and then
If you haven't got "MailScanner -v" working, then you have a pretty
ancient version. If your SA is that old then an upgrade to the latest
would help too. Upgrade SA using the ClamAV+SA package that I distribute
on the MailScanner downloads page. It will save you a lot of time than
doing it by hand.
