Your call. Do you want to stay current with any updates as soon as they come
out, or do you want to wait for the package maintainers to release the newer
versions. I'm not bagging on any package maintainers, as I know most of them
have regular jobs, but it is up to you to decide. I don't spend more than an
hour a month keeping current with the source packages. Julian has made the
process very easy with his all in one package of Clam-AV and spamassassin, and
the MailScanner package.


MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
