MailScanner via Yum (CentOS)

Hi Julian,

Thanks for the reply.  That's how I've been installing it on Suse, just
thought I'd ask in case there was a neater/simpler way on CentOS/RHEL.

Is there a list somewhere of what the MailScanner script checks for
before (if needed) installing itself?  

It would be nice (I presume, certainly not an expert on this!) to have
as much as possible pre-installed?

I don't believe you can, no. Sorry. It only takes a few minutes to 
install with my installation script.
