On FC10 I used "rpm -e --nodeps perl-IO" for this and other dependency  
problems, then yum update, then re-install MailScanner just in case it  
still wants to add to the provided perl modules.

Works fine. I just need to remember that if yum wants to update any perl  
modules I'll need to keep an eye on it and possibly repeat the above. I  
don't let yum run automatically.

The advantage of this method is that I'm always running standard FC10 perl  
modules, with MailScanner "on top". So much less likely to break other  
FC10 perl requirements.
