MailScanner hooks...

Hi all,

I am new to mailscanner and am very interested in it's use.  One
thing that I need to do for my application is to put in "hooks" so a
script of mine is called before and another one after virus scanning,
spamassasin, etc operations.

The reason for this is for email logging and other processing that I do.

Alternatively, is there a way that I can call mailscanner (not in
daemon mode) to process emails one by one from my own scanning loop
??  I know that I can redefine the input/output queue and move a
single message into the mailscanner input queue and read it from the
output queue when finished.

I want to make the minimal (i.e. none) mods to mailscanner so that it
can be upgraded easily when Julian releases new versions.
