I also noticed that the /etc/init.d/mailscanner startups script no longer
start the sendmail queues needed to run MailScanner.

The old v4 /etc/init.d/MailScanner startup script had quite an amount of
logic in it to deal with these stopping and starting these MTA processes.

How is this supposed to work with v5? Are there separate startup scripts
for the various MTAs? I could not find any.
