You will have to make a sys V init script for it. You can probably use an 
existing script and edit it to suit your program, or there is example in 
/usr/share/doc/initscripts-xxxxxx directory that you should be able to hack 
at. That will also help you to get lock files and pid files going for it if 
you need them.

The other choice is to add a line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local, but that won't give 
you control with the system command.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
