Unhappy greylist and Mailscanner


I Install smf-grey in my server (sendmail 8.13+MailScanner 4.56+spamassassin 3.2), but MailScanner and spamassassin don't works ... every mail incoming pass to sendmail and smf-grey ... but don't pass for MailScanner and spamassassin, how can fix that without uninstalling smf-grey??

MailScanner and SpamAssassin

You must "turn off" sendmail and allow MailScanner to invoke sendmail.

Stop the MTA from starting at boot time:
chkconfig --level all sendmail off
Setup MailScanner to start at boot time:
chkconfig --level 345 MailScanner on
Start MailScanner:
service sendmail stop
service MailScanner start

That SHOULD do it. This shouldn't interfere with smf-grey, as MailScanner will invoke sendmail. What's happening now is sendmail is starting on its own, and MailScanner/SpamAssassin are getting bypassed.
