Installation problems with stable release of 4.55

That would indicate that the Filesys::Df module did not install 
successfully. Re-run and watch carefully when Filesys::Df 
tries to install. It's just after Time::HiRes towards the end (after DBI 
and DBD::SQLite). Note down why Filesys::Df did not install and let me 
know what it said.

Otherwise, if it still won't install, do this:
# perl -MCPAN -e shell
 > install Filesys::Df

and hopefully that will install it.

What does "MailScanner --version" say?
What version/release of Linux are you using?

Please let us know how you get on resolving this problem.
