What version of CentOS?  If it's CentOS 7, you're going to need the
latest patches that are being actively worked on.  MailScanner has some
patches for systemd (the init system for CentOS 7, Fedora, and other
recent distros) but the modules for independently firing up sendmail in
cooperation with MailScanner are incomplete.  There are some patches in
git right now for 5.0.4 which are working for me in Fedora 24. 
Comments indicate CentOS 6, CentOS 7, and Fedora 25 are also installing




Work is actively in progress.

If you are the developer type, you can do what I did.  Clone the
MailScanner v5 git repo and then pull down a patch for the latest patch
 from shawniverson.  Latest patch is currently this:

To view:

A "patchable" patch:

Apply patch and run the "Build.rhel" script.  That will create an rpm
for you which you can install through yum/dnf.  I have it running on my
Fedora systems now.  If you're not up to doing that, you may have to
wait a few days, at least for the patch to be merged into the 5.0.4
