I've been using Fedora since it was Red Hat 9

I've been running run more than  10 mailservers using 
postfix+mysql+MailScanner+mailwatch in a clustered environment, and I 
never had any kind of problem

MailScanner has always worked very fine and installed OK until the 
latest relase, when it seems to remove pieces it needs.

I'm pretty sure that Fedora is a VERY important platform, and Jules 
will, as usual, support it.

Than you Jules for all your efforts
