Why didn't you use the RedHat RPM-based distribution of MailScanner?  
It would have saved you a whole world of pain, and everything is there.

Hose /opt/MailScanner completely, download the RPM-based distribution  
of MailScanner, and install that instead. Your life will be a lot  
easier :-)

If you use the most recent version you will find it is a whole lot  
faster, too. There is a program called "upgrade_MailScanner_conf"  
which will do all the hard work of upgrading your MailScanner.conf  
file to the latest version. Once you have MailScanner installed, just  
read the instructions it prints out at the end of the installation
