1. How about 'postconf -n' like support for mailscanner to see changed 
parameters in MailScanner.conf as compared to the default values? 
troubleshooting and problem reporting would be much easier this way. The 
current 'MaiScanner -v' doesn't do this..

If you have a postfix based server, try a 'postconf -n' or 'postfinger' 
to see the output.

2. This is more for the beta list.. but testers need to come up with a 
test framework for testing new releases. Typically the test framework 
ought to test: HAM, Eicar, GTUBE, Webbugs, Phishing, etc. possibly a 
web-based test OR a 'telnet 2500' like test where you 
submit your IP and test things.
