Well, I'm not sure what's going on but I keep getting the message in 
maillog "Service unavailable".

I soft linked in /etc/smrsh the name of the perl script to the modified 
script you provided me, added the line in aliases, ran newaliases and 
restarted MailScanner.

My sendmail.cf already had the MProg line configured properly.

I'm running Centos 6, by the way. Any clues? the smrsh is a little 
generic to provide a lot, since it references the smrsh.c file, which I 
don't have on my system.
