Hmmm... Good question. They are using Aladdin e-Safe,
which currently receives the mails to scan through
SMTP, just like it were a 'real' mail server. I do not
know anything more (yet) but I'm going to look around.
If there is a e-Safe client that can run on the
MailScanner box, I bet this would be the way to go.

But is is still possible to plug a 'smtp client' in 
MailScanner, if there is no specific client ?
