If the machine can be offline for about 10 minutes it is easy.

stop mailscanner. If you don't have a backup MX you can start incoming
(service MailScanner startin)

Back up current if you want (there is a script available on the wiki )

Unpack and install clam-sa package
unpack and install MailScanner package

service MailScanner restart

tail maillog to see if everything is working

Pat self on back and get cup of coffee.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
