Hi Kevin,

The biggest thing I recommend is having a good backup of your MailScanner
configuration in /etc/MailScanner.  The install script attempts to work
around some issues from 4 to 5 and merge the new configuration, but if
something goes wrong your backup will come in handy.

The paths of MailScanner files change from 4 to 5 to be more FHS compliant,
so you'll find the perl stuff in /usr/share/MailScanner after upgrading.

If you are using 3rd party av scanners, some scanners were removed in v5,
be sure to verify before upgrading.

Lastly, a new group called mtagroup comes with v5.  Place your mta and av
scanners in this group.  Also, you may need to assign mtagroup to some
directories on your system, such as your mta spool directories.
