Smile Sa-exim problem


i have configured exim 4.72-5 and i am trying to use sa-exim with that. Everything is working fine. I have successfully copy sa-exim-4.2.so to /usr/lib/exim4/local_scan/sa-exim-4.2.so
[root@server1 sa-exim-4.2]# ll /usr/lib/exim4/local_scan/sa-exim-4.2.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 50447 Mar 23 09:45 /usr/lib/exim4/local_scan/sa-exim-4.2.so

but when i enter local_scan_path in exim configuration file i am getting below error
[root@server1 src]# /usr/exim/bin/exim -bd -q15m
2013-03-24 05:44:26 Exim configuration error in line 2 of /usr/exim/configure:
main option "local_scan_path" unknown

I have mention this in my configuration file
[root@server1 src]# head /usr/exim/configure
#local_scan_path =/usr/lib/exim4/local_scan/sa-exim-4.2.so
local_scan_path = /usr/lib/exim4/local_scan/sa-exim-4.2.so
# $Cambridge: exim/exim-src/src/configure.default,v 1.14 2009/10/16 07:46:13 tom Exp $

If you tried to look up the error, you'd have seen that local_scan_path is used/needed, only if you patched exim with the dynamically loadable local scan patch. You didn't, so the option is unknown/unneeded. Remove it.

Also, you were advised before to NOT use exim, but seem to have ignored that advice:
