A lint doesn't do network tests, and IIRC this is classed as such. So
you need either run the test through MailScanners debug feature (which
will run one batch through,  very verbosly, then exit) or by doing
"sendmail -t -D < /path/to/a/test/message/in/RFC822/format", Then you
should see a call to the dcc application(s) later on in the debug
You should also see DCC hits.
If you just now uncommented it, you need restart MailScanner for it to
take effect (so that SA get loaded).
