Removal hint added. Should a solution to this problem become available
soonish, the package should get back into lenny.

Removal hint added. FWIW, software like mailscanner, having extensive
contact with possible attackers, should be maintained by someone who's
able to fix security issues in a timely manner. The fact that it isn't
is grounds to remove it from lenny.
