I have just released the latest version 4.36.1.
This is mostly to get everyone up to the same point in the development of
the phishing net.
It also adds support for RedHat Enterprise Server (and AS) version 4 beta 2.

One more thing: the Linux script now supports a command-line
option "fast" (i.e. "./ fast") which makes it only ever wait 1
second in the pauses, rather than up to 10 seconds which it does normally.
Speeds up installations enormously!

Download it as usual from

There is now unofficial support on IRC ( #mailscanner).

The full Changelog is this:

* New Features and Improvements *
- Improved URL trimming in phishing net.
- Various improvements and fixes in phishing net.
- Added support for RedHat Enterprise Linux 4.
- Added check for Password-Protected Archives setting when using

* Fixes *
- Fixed outstanding problem in bitdefender-autoupdate, so that it works
  properly on new installations.
- Fixed logging problem with phishing net on a few malformed messages.
