I apologize for posting these topics a second time, but I didn't receive any responses the first time.  I can understand that the topics may not be worthy of a reply, but I thought people on this list would be interested in discussing a software package that incorporates MailScanner, Kaspersky Anti-Virus and Clam Anti-Virus, and SpamAssassin.  I have not installed OpenProtect (already have MailScanner working), but here are some quotes from the documentation.

"MTA's supported are: Sendmail, Postfix, Exim and Qmail" (Did they get Qmail to work with MailScanner?  It is not officially supported)
"Run the script openprotect-install in the package directory and answer the questions. The script should take care of the installation by itself."
"The install script does the following: 

1)Installs Kaspersky Version 5 
2)Installs ClamAV Version 0.65 
3)Installs perl modules needed by MailScanner 
4)Installs SpamAssassin and perl modules needed by SpamAssassin 
5)Installs MailScanner 
6)Installs the OpenSupport package 
7)Configures MTA Dependent MailScanner configurations 
8)Configures MTA Independent MailScanner configurations 
9)Stops your MTA and starts the MTA along with filter modules "

Secondly, is there a reason that MailScanner is not posted on SourceForge?  I believe it would greatly increase the audience of MailScanner, and be highly beneficial to the project overall (more users).  I have created a project on SourceForge and it is painless.  Any thoughts on this?
