Since no one else has jumped on this.... it looks like you have Exim as your
MTA. This explains why the sendmail commands did not work for you. I don't
run Exim myself but thought I'd at least point you in the right direction to
get started. I'm sure others that do use MainScanner/Exim will help if you
run into issues.

You'll be looking for setup instructions and configs for MailScanner running
with Exim. A quick google search turned up:

I don't know of a definitive install guide for Exim but I'm pretty sure it's
documented well in the MailScanner docs and remarked in MailScanner.conf.

I hope this, along with some tips from Exim users will get you going on the
right path.
