I don't see any reference to mailscanner trying to start postfix on the
http://mailscanner.info/postfix.html web page, and would be very shocked
if that were the case.
I've always used postfix, and have never known a content filter to try
and start an MTA. Personally, it doesn't seem like a logical/sensible
thing to do. System services / daemons such as these are designed to be
started and stopped independently via the rc.d control scripts, so they
do not interfere with each other; I believe it would be highly
undesirable for them to behave any differently.
