The latest post to Mailwatch-users was July 23rd, 2020. I encourage you 
to post there as it is indeed active. I don't mind helping, but this is 
starting to get deeper into MailWatch itself and less so with 
MailScanner. :)

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.
