I have been running Trend for months now.  It is free for non commerical
servers.  It works perfectly with MailScanner.  I wrote my own perl script
to poll their site hourly and download a new version if required.

I also see no reason why MailScanner should consider its support as Alpha.
It's been working perfectly!
