Yes, I let MailScanner control the sendmail process.
I guess I am wondering if there is anything special that needs to be
done with the sendmail.cf or submit.cf.. it sendmail just supposed to be
configured as a nullclient? If I configure it as a null client, the
message gets delivered immediately and seems to bypass MailScanner all
together.. However, when I configure it with a smart host (vs doing a
null client), it gets delivered to the /var/spool/mqueue.in directory
and doesn't go any where from there..
