Manually Editing MailScanner.conf for Qmail

Sometimes it might be necessary to manually make the changes to the MailScanner.conf file, although qms attempts to automatically patch your conf file there may be situations where it can't, the msconf script generally errors when it can't find MailScanner.conf, it searches under /opt and /etc by default as that's where the tarball and rpm's put it so in these instances you may have to apply the following:

Run As User = qmailq
Run As Group = qmail
Incoming Queue Dir = /var/qmail/queue.in/mess
Outgoing Queue Dir = /var/qmail/queue/mess
Sendmail = /var/qmail/bin/qmail-inject.mailscanner
Sendmail2 = /var/qmail/bin/qmail-inject.mailscanner
SpamAssassin User State Dir = /var/spool/MailScanner/spamass
MTA = qmail


ensure /var/spool/MailScanner is recursively owned by qmailq.qmail
