Is MailScanner safe to use with postfix ? The postfix site and several
messages in the archives advise strongly not to use postfix with MS
because postfix does not like to have its queues manipulated by an
external program.

Postfix has a content filter interface they they suggest using and the
current postfix snapshot has a new smtp content filter proxy interface
that looks interesting.

I don't like sendmail anymore (security issues seem to never stop), so I
have switched to postfix for all mail relay and mailbox destinations -
with a MailScanner + sendmail box that sits in the middle.
