I haven't tried using it on Ubuntu, but on both CentOS and SUSE all I had to do was stop the sendmail daemon, make sure it's set to not start at boot, then set the /etc/init.d/MailScanner script to start at boot.  The MailScanner script will handle starting and stopping sendmail.

I think you stop a daemon in Ubuntu similar to Redhat/Centos - i.e. "service sendmail stop|start|status"  and use update-rc.d to enable/disable boot time options.

Subject: ubuntu 12.10 install

I installed Mailscanner and --lint shows it to be working just fine on Ubuntu 12.10 except that it isn't hooking into my optional MTA sendmail, installed from the official apt-get sources.  I would learn postfix but I have a large sendmail configuration to port and negative work hours available to switch.  I am in need of help with finding documentation on how to get MailScanner to 'hook' into Sendmail on Ubuntu.  I've Googled quite a bit but apparently the terms Ubuntu, sendmail and mailscanner  don't return useful information.  It generally returns links to how to set it up with postfix.    If anyone who has done this with a recent version of Ubuntu could point me in the right direction, I'd be most grateful.
