The "Other Unix" MailScanner distribution is intended for use any on
sort of Unix system. Quite a few variants of Unix don't even use init.d
scripts at all (e.g. Solaris 10) and on those that do they are all
different. If you want an init.d script for your variant of Unix, then I
suggest you copy one from another fairly simple service (perhaps ntpd or
sshd or something like that) and modify it to suit your requirements.
I'm certainly not going to start trying to maintain startup scripts and
metadata (including XML files in some cases) for every version of every
variant of Unix in use around the world. Sorry, life's too short to get
into that sort of thing!
