Syslog in Solaris 10 normally doesn't listen for remote requests. You
can test with:

# netstat -a | grep syslog

You should get something like this:

      *.syslog                            Idle

Also check your /etc/default/syslogd file for the LOG_FROM_REMOTE
setting, there's other ways of controlling it as well.

Which version of MailScanner do you use? Since 4.66 you are able to
try different settings of Syslog Socket Type.
