Yup - it looks pretty good on the face of it.

It would be great to have this work with mailscanner. SpamAssassin seems to
work well for me but if there is a better engine out there for filtering
spam then I would love to be able to use that with MS.

Oddly enough I was looking at it today.  It certainly looks like a great
concept and it's been written up on Slashdot recently which positive

For us it wouldn't work because by default it replaces the MDA rather than
intercepting the message before delivery (like spamd or mailscanner
currently does).  Unless someone has already done this?

I'm sure however we'd use it if it was integrated into MailScanner ;)
