Postfix and MailScanner

I've been using MailScanner with sendmail historically, but have made the leap to postfix.  With sendmail, I had to disable the init script (chkconfig sendmail off) so it didn't start and enable the MailScanner init script (which started sendmail).  The instructions on the web page don't mention disabling the postfix - they just say to start MailScanner and it should handle starting postfix.  Do I need to do anything special to insure that MailScanner starts before and in place of postfix?

Any systemd issues or tweaks?
