Did you run something to backup your previous install?
There was a script in the MAQ I use before I upgrade that copies the existing
MailScanner stuff to MailScanner.%CURRENT-DATE%.
If you didn't back up, and you ran the upgrade_mailscanner_conf script, you
might be able to remove the new install( or rename), re-install the one you
want, and copy over the configs you need.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
