there's a similar program called amavis (actually amavis-new) that does
the same thing. judging from the docs, mailscanner was written with
sendmail in mind, although it will also work with postfix. amavis-new
was written with postfix in mind, but will also work with sendmail.
all hail the choices available with open source!
