MailScanner ANNOUNCE: New stable release 4.78.17

I just upgraded to the version 4.78.  The install failed due to many
Perl-related files being deleted by the script.  I copied
them back from another system and was able to continue.  I am using a
custom conf file in the conf.d directory.  One issue though, the
%org-name% variable did not replace the 'yoursite' value from

I had to edit the /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf file to replace
'yoursite' with our site name:

from /etc/MailScanner/conf.d/

# %org-name% = yoursite
%org-name% = BakerBotts
# %org-long-name% = Your Organisation Name Here
%org-long-name% = Baker Botts LLP
# %web-site% =
%web-site% =
# Max Children = 5
Max Children = 9
