 and Clam-0.95.2-SA-3.2.5 jules package

i also upgraded the OS to centos 5.3 usng yum update and everthing went OK

 everything went fine and is working but when i run

 MailScanner --lint

Version number in MailScanner.conf (4.77.10) is correct.

Your envelope_sender_header in spam.assassin.prefs.conf is correct.
