        Hi all,

        I run p3scan ( on a linux internet gateway. Its a pop3 proxy which intercept pop3 connections (helped by iptables) from internal network to the external pop3 servers. But such software has not a feature that I need and Mailscanner has: search for attachment names and remove such attachs, sending mail to the recipient without such "bad" attach.

        I read how mailscanner works and saw that it use the sendmail queue schema. Can I run mailscanner in another way, say, calling it from p3scan?

        If not, I program in C, and could change mailscanner parts to make this job. If so, some hint from developers?

        Thank you
