Installed "from the website": what website? How did you install it?
What do you get when you run
    /opt/MailScanner/bin/MailScanner -v
    /opt/MailScanner/bin/MailScanner --lint

 thanks for the quick reply, much appreciated.
to make a long story short, I've inherited this site and done some upgrades.
latest version from here:
ran per the readme
upgraded spam assassin also, which went pretty well I believe.
to answer your  question,  running /opt/MailScanner/bin/MailScanner -v
gives me the proper output, so it appears the path is correct.
Perl 5.8.8
MailScanner 4.68.8
no other errors.
reading the Phishing lists  ( that looks fine. )
sa working directory is /tmp  ( not sure if that is correct )
spamassassin reported no errors.  ( that would be right. )
found clamav installed.  ( also correct.)
found 1 problems.  ( it doesn't specify as far as I can tell. )
does that all make sense ? 
we are passing mail no problem, mta is postfix.
