Chkconfig MailScanner on is sufficient. It will start in the normal run-levels
of 3,4,and 5. You don't want a bunch of stuff starting in 1 as this is your
single user "emergency" level. And level 2 is useful for remote maintenance
with most un-necessary stuff turned off. Almost can be set up as a rescue
level with networking and maybe ssh running.


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