Most likely when you start sendmail outside of MailScanner, it's running
with certain arguments or options that are not being called from the
MailScanner init scripts, since your config files aren't in the standard
place. Compare their startup options and you'll probably find out why it
isn't running properly.


Well, sendmail is in the same place as ever, and new MailScanner is still
where it was when I ran the original upgrade in 2007, and everything runs
beautifully, except that sasl can't find the users when they're not in /etc.
Somehow, two weeks ago it knew to look in /home/virtual/site1/fst/etc for
those users (shadow/passwd files).
