Thanks avain Kevin. I am already using the postfix snapshot. 

Still looking for mailstats - but its not urgent. 

Could some one please tell me what i need to do to mailscanner to tell it to allow inbound email from my private IP address? I have modified our private DNS MX for our domain to point to the IP of the mailscanner (also on private subnet), then i use another linux machine to fire off email, but always gets rejected, because it comes from a private subnet - where do i tell mailscanner to allow email from this private ip?

Is it blocked by postfix or mailscanner?

If it is mailscanner, just go to /etc/MailScanner/rules/spam.whitelist.rules, and insert your ip address, following the format.

Simply delete all the contents of each subdirectory of
/var/www/html/mailsacnner-mrtg  (but don't delete the directories
themselves).  And then run
mrtg /etc/mrtg/mailscanner-mrtg.cfg > /dev/null 2>&1
three times to re-establish the graphs.

If you're using Postfix you need the current snapshot of
mailscanner-mrtg (http://mailscannermrtg.sourceforge.net/snap.html) - or
wait until I release v0.06 - probably happening this weekend.

Theres several, David While's mailstats is very good (and offers a
different focus to mailscanner-mrtg) - I don't know if it supports
postfix though.
