Package: mailscanner
Version: 4.41.3-2
Severity: minor

The way that the README proposes to configure sendmail is at least
not ideal. You don't need to mess with init scripts which are
overwriten. Setting sendmail and mailscanner in Debian is as
easy as the following:

1 - Create /var/spool/mqueue.in with the same permissions than /var/spool/mqueue

2 - Edit /etc/mail/sendmail.conf and set DAEMON_PARMS to:
    DAEMON_PARMS="-OPrivacyOptions=noetrn -ODeliveryMode=queueonly -OQueueDirectory=/var/spool/mqueue.in";

3 - cd /etc/mail and type make after changing sendmail.conf in step 2.

4 - /etc/init.d/sendmail reload

5 - Edit /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf and change at least the following:
    Incoming Queue Dir = /var/spool/mqueue.in
    Outgoing Queue Dir = /var/spool/mqueue
    Run As User =

After starting it for the first time it may warn about lack of privileges in
some directories, just follow the instructions given.


I have configured it this way successfully many times and it's running in
production environments with a heavy load.

I Hope you find it useful.
