Thanks for your input, tomorrow I am going to replace my current 
MailScanner.conf with the .rpmnew and then go back and make my changes I 
need to be sure that I dont have some issue with this being related to 
an upgrade maybe not properly parsing my .conf file. If it is still 
happening after that then I think this is likely a bug.
