Just for fun I upgraded from 4.55.9 to 4.55.10 on a Centos 4.3 box test

I then ran MailScanner --lint and got the following.  

The configuration file /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf
is too new for this version of MailScanner.
This is version 4.55.9 but the config file is for at least version

Easy fix is to modify the MailScanner.conf file and change the version
to 4.55.9, but I thought you'd like to know.

Thanks for MailScanner Julian.

The author of the Sys::Syslog perl module has withdrawn it due to 
problems including compatibility issues with some Linux distributions.

The most obvious effect is that the "make test" step may hang part-way

through the tests.

As a result, I have had no alternative other than to reluctantly
a revision of the latest stable release of MailScanner.

If you had problems installing 4.55.9 (notably on some CentOS systems)

then download and upgrade to 4.55.10.

Download as usual from 

Note that if you had no problems installing 4.55.9, there is no reason

to upgrade to 4.55.10.

Sorry for this forced re-release.
