For MailScanner --lint I get this:

Trying to setlogsock(unix)
Checking version numbers...
Version number in MailScanner.conf (4.67.6) is correct.

Your envelope_sender_header in spam.assassin.prefs.conf is correct.

Checking for SpamAssassin errors (if you use it)...
SpamAssassin temp dir = /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/SpamAssassin-Temp
SpamAssassin reported no errors.
MailScanner.conf says "Virus Scanners = clamav"
Found these virus scanners installed: clamav
Virus Scanner test reports:
ClamAV said " contains Eicar-Test-Signature"

If any of your virus scanners (clamav)
are not listed there, you should check that they are installed correctly
and that MailScanner is finding them correctly via its virus.scanners.conf.

MailScanner -v gives me this for SpamAssassin: 3.002004
(I installed it using the SA/ClamAV bundle you have on the MailScanner site)
