I quite agree with your position. You shouldn't be fighting with init 
scripts or getting sendmail started right or anything like that.
I think if you uninstall the (totally broken) Ubuntu distribution of 
MailScanner 4.58 (yes, brand new Ubuntu 8 ships with a version of 
MailScanner well over a year old!) and download and install the latest 
Debian version of MailScanner with the "dpkg -i" command, you will get a 
whole lot further a lot faster.
