Yes. Ubuntu uses an elegant, but complicated set of scripts to start sendmail. Essentially the init script loads options from /etc/mail/sendmail.conf (not sendmail.cf) which in turn gets most of its settings dynamically or from other scripts. I really don't see the way to make it such that MailScanner starts up the mta and the queue runner runs on its own. Perhaps I should give up on the Ubuntu apt-get for MailScanner and instead install it from the tarball ? I was hoping to be able to automate keeping it up to date, having run it for many years on fedora and having to install from tarballs each time.

Have you tried looking at the general sendmail setup? http://www.mailscanner.info/sendmail.html

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.
