As a long-time user of MailScanner on Red Hat, I think this is
the right way to go. Thanks very much for your efforts.

I've taken the liberty of mailing the "main contacts" for these two
packages, asking about getting them into EPEL 7. (I have no idea
if that's the appropriate way to make such a request or not, but if
not, at least they'll be irked with me, not you.)
