Hello Mark,

Just an FYI, but the last activity on the MailWatch users list is 4-years ago, in 2016.  I love using MailWatch with MailScanner, and had it up and running prior to upgrading to CentOS 6, but am not able to get it running this time around. The installation page is quite difficult to use, being that it has mistakes and omissions.  It was a bit of a miracle that I even got this far...took many hours of wrangling, and I don't really want to give up on it just yet.  Googling the subject isn't working.  Trust me, I spend a great deal of time wrestling with things on my own before ever seeking assistance.  Any help is very much appreciated.

I have no answer for this, but is there some reason this is being
discussed here rather than on the MailWatch list?
