I've been running mailscanner now for 1 year. I think this is a great
and laudable effort. Thanks Julian.

I posted a message to this list a week or so back, saying that we were
(temporarily) running a commercial product (MailSweeper) behind
MailScanner so MailSweeper would pick up anything which MailScanner had

Julian's response seemed to be along the lines of "Of course you wont
see anything ....  "

I confess that I was a bit more sceptical.

After a couple of weeks, I can confirm that all we have seen is the
harmless KLEZ viruses with malformed MIME.

Very impressed.
