Look in the july archives - I updated the same setup you have and it broke.  In the email was what worked for me - but yeah test it out first if you can...  Mine was messed up for a couple days until I got it fixed with a hack.

Subj:  Yum updates for Perl, just say no?

I just finished building a new server , Centos 5.2 with MailScanner 4.70.7
(from, RPM)  and Mailwatch 1.0.4. It's running absolutely beautifully!
I almost did a yum -y update today, but decided I'd better check what it
wants to update.

Looks like it wants to update a boatload of Perl modules.  I'm assuming that
I *don't* want it to do that.
Should I configure yum to exclude perl modules?  Anything else I should
exclude to prevent MailScanner troubles?
