: I'd also look in other logs...could this be an SELinux problem?

: SELinux is disabled. And, yes, I restarted MailScanner after

: Would that it were so easy! Please keep the ideas and

How about some log entries from /var/log/maillog and /var/log/messages
at the time of a 'service MailScanner restart'.  Just do this:

# service MailScanner restart;tail -f /var/log/maillog /var/log/message

Paste a bit of those logs and also a ps -ef  Might as well throw a
chkconfig sendmail --list in there too.
