I will try to drudge up an unused PC to give OpenProtect a try.  I see that Ugo has installed it on Fedora with no problems.  I am on their mailing list and they just released a new version last week.  Changes include:

*Support for *BSD style init scripts added
*Fixed init problem in Linux Systems like Slackware, Gentoo
*Fixed init problem in *BSD Systems like FreeBSD, OpenBSd, NetBSD, etc
*Fixed RH 6.2 init bug
*Fixed Perl 5.005 missing header files needed for HTML-Parser
*Fixed problem, if qmail is not installed at /var/qmail, by recompiling the qmail-queue binary
*Added all the languages supported in MailScanner 4.24-15
*Fixed Clamav's /var/lib/clamav permission
*Fixed GCC, PERL, GLIBC and KERNEL version checking bug
*Added a DEFAULTS file for stating the default settings 
*Added a THANKS file for crediting those who helped in bug fixing and
suggesting new features

That is great!  You do not have to host with Sourceforge, you can configure it point to your current MailScanner site.  I would recommend adding a link to the Sourceforge logo on your footer.  It acts as a counter, and will allow MailScanner to climb to the top of popular projects, where it will garner even more attention.  If have any questions about SourceForge I will do my best to answer them.
