qmail-ldap + qmail-scanner = help needed


I have successfully setup and configured qmail-ldap + samba + squirrelmail + courier-imap on my Redhat 9 box. This was as per life with qmail-ldap tutorial.

However, I am facing some issues with installation of qmail-scanner. When I use "" method of installing qmail-scanner, it complains about absence of QMAILQUEUE patch in /var/qmail/supervise/qmail-smtpd. As I have qmail-ldap running, I assume that the qmail source has already been patched with the QMAILQUEUE patch.

Anyways, I tried to patch this qmail-ldap source tree with the qmailqueue patch but I got the following errors.

cp qmailqueue.patch /usr/local/src/qmail/
cd /usr/local/src/qmail/qmail-1.03
patch -p1 < ../qmailqueue.patch
patching file Makefile
Hunk #1 FAILED at 1483.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file Makefile.rej
patching file qmail.c
Hunk #1 FAILED at 6.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file qmail.c.rej

Therefore, I ran the command
./qms-config install --no-QQ-Check
This option which disbales the check for QMAILQUEUE patch. so install succeeded. However, even after installation, there is no file called /var/qmail/bin/ Also the directory /var/spool/qmailscan has not been created where I can copy the file quarantine-attachments.txt to generate a database.

I know I am going wrong somewhere. Can anyone assist me in getting qmail-scanner installation right ?? (just to remind u guys that mine is a QMAIL-LDAP installation....)

thanx in advance
