Mailscanner + Postfix on SuSE 9.0 NEEP HELP


Hi all

I am having a slight problem setting mailscanner up with postfix
My setup is the following
Suse 9.0, latest Mailscanner and postfix also latest
My question maybe silly but i Mailscanner isn't starting properly.

i followed these instructions on a website i found how to set up an 2 instances of postfix
/etc/postfix
/etc/postfix.in
and when i run /etc/init.d/Mailscanner start i get this output

Initializing incoming postfix failed
Initializing outgoing postfix failed
Initializing MailScanner

when i check the mail logs for errors the following appear
Mar 26 12:17:25 ns1 postfix/postfix-script: starting the Postfix mail system
Mar 26 12:17:25 ns1 postfix/master[26476]: daemon started -- version 2.0.14

i am realy not shure waht to do or waht these messages tell me

My only theory is that the Mailscanner script is stating to many instances of the postfix...

Why not try Hula? It provides a prebuilt email and calandering server. It has Anti-Spam and Anti-Virus backends and the connectors for ClamAV and SA will be added soon.

This what's worked form me today (05 Jan 2006) on a Suse 9.3 professional:

1 - stop postfix
2 - download the source code from postfix.org
3 - run the shell script LINUX2 (/source_dir/examples/chrootjail)
4 - open master.cf and search for smtp (not inetd) then under the column chroot replace n with yes
5 - restart postfix
6 - start mailscanner

Sorry, not lucky.

All seems to be correct, mailscanner said done but smtp server doesn't starts!
