Mailscanner not in the email loop?

OK, this is a total n00b question but previous versions of MailScanner
would start sendmail for me. Now it seems that sendmail is split and
must be started as a separate service.
I did a completely new install but it looks like sendmail is now
immediately delivering mail from my linux box -> exchange box (because of
mailertable), MailScanner is not getting/scanning any email at all.
How do I get MailScanner in the loop?
I checked the info under MTA on www.mailscanner.info but the info
looks pretty old and the CentOS6 command to invoke sendmail looks
completely different from what is on the website ?
(I checked an existing MailScanner installation grepping mqueue.in on /etc
but no hits at all)
# Start daemons.
echo -n $"Starting $prog: "
daemon /usr/sbin/sendmail $([ "x$DAEMON" = xyes ] && echo -bd) \
$([ -n "$QUEUE" ] && echo -q$QUEUE) $SENDMAIL_OPTARG
[ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && touch /var/lock/subsys/sendmail
if [ ! -f /var/run/sm-client.pid ]; then
echo -n $"Starting sm-client: "
chown smmsp:smmsp /var/run/sm-client.pid
if [ -x /usr/sbin/selinuxenabled ] && /usr/sbin/selinuxenabled;
daemon --check sm-client /usr/sbin/sendmail -L sm-msp-queue -Ac \
[ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && touch /var/lock/subsys/sm-client
[ $ret -eq 0 ] && return 0 || return 1
