Postfix has a long support history here,
We've been running Postfix on Centos since June 2006.
I pulled this from my notes.

# 20060524 using:
# Server OS: Centos 4.2 ServerCD
# MailScanner-4.55.10-1.rpm.tar.gz
# postfix v2.1.5
# install-Clam-0.88.6-SA-3.1.7.tar.gz
# Using DAGs repo's

Now running:
CentOS release 5.4 (Final)
Julians install-Clam-SA-latest.tar.gz  ( ver: SA 3.25 + ClamAV .95.3 )

# yum install postfix
# service postfix stop
# service sendmail stop

Let the MailScanner script start/stop the MTA.

Plenty of support on the MailScanner Forums.
Either way, enjoy.
