Just a quick warning to everyone.  A Redhat update for perl was released 
yesterday.  Once applied a restart of MailScanner fails with...

Starting MailScanner...

**** ERROR: You must upgrade your perl IO module to at least
**** ERROR: version 1.2301 or MailScanner will not work!


The new perl rpm for RHEL4 is perl-5.8.5-36.el4_6.3.  For RHEL3 it's 
perl-5.8.0-98.EL3.  I don't know about the other releases.  The fix for 
us was to re-install MailScanner (i.e. ./install.sh fast).
