you'd survive that shock :-)
If on a system installed using the RedHat RPM distribution, just use the
init.d script to do it all for you:
(or on RedHat systems just service MailScanner start) If not using the
RedHat RPM distribution, then
1. Start Postfix
2. Start MailScanner
iirc, if you use install via Jules' installer package, on some Red Hat
flavour MailScanner's init script controlls Postfix.
How it works on other OSs/Distros, I can't tell.
