Trimming the fat from MailScanner

Here I sit creating the RPM build and I am thinking that there are some items that just are not needed anymore. For example, we don’t update_virus_scanners nor do we need update_spamassassin. I don’t know of any virus scanner package that does not have its own update platform. The same is true Spamassassin. sa-compile will automatically do what is needed as long as you have re2c installed and the Rule2XSBody module installed and loaded.

So in addition to standardizing the directory structure across all platforms, I am also removing these scripts. They are far beyond their expiration date. 

I am also removing processing_messages_alert from being in any cron by default.
