Change the routes in /etc/sysconfig/static-routes-ipv6 then manually add them 
with the route command.
Example from route man page;

  For IPv6, only the slash format is accepted.  The  following
      example creates an IPv6 route to the destination 33fe:: with
      a netmask of 16 one-bits followed by 112 zero-bits.

      example# route add -inet6 3ffe::/16 somegateway

      In cases where the gateway does not  uniquely  identify  the
      output  interface (for example, when several interfaces have
      the same address), you can use the -ifp ifname  modifier  to
      specify the interface by name. For example, -ifp lo0 associ-
      ates the route with the lo0 interface.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
