FreeBSD Port: MailScanner-4.67.6

Portupgrade -a -r -p took care of everything after my cvsup.

Ports were about 3-4 months out of date.  Once updated and restarted,
everything worked fine.  (portupgrade loaded or upgraded all the
requirements you mention below.)

How can people not love this OS?  

I can't wait to migrate some of the machines in my house to 7.0.

Thanks again to all!

Well with the version 4.64.4 i had that problem, i could not update
p5-Mail-Tools to 2.02
Now with version 4.67.6 it works just fine.
Also make sure you have devel/p5-IO installed, It is needed now by
It was not in the ports for some time but i send a pr and p5-IO is added
to the build of MailScanner now
