I want to use mailscanner as my mailgateway. Is it possible to follow the 
setup in the genral documentation? Or does this only apply if you have 
everything on the same box.

I guess there are some challenges if/ when you have to run to instances of 
sendmail for instance. I have been reading quite a lot of the documentatin, 
but have not been able to find anything specific on this, and I do not want 
to start something which is not possible to achieve.

What I want the mailgateway to do is the traditional: Recive mail, scan it 
for viruses an spam and then dump it off to the actual mailserver (should 
apply for both incoming an outgoing mail ofcourse).

I already have a functioning mailserver with squirrel an some other stuff. 
This is working well and I do not want to put anything more into this box.

Hoetos and hint will be highly appreciated!
