I don't guarantee that the versions of modules I ship are the most up to 
date. But I do know that they all work together well. Every now and then 
people release code that doesn't work perfectly (I'm as bad at that as 
everyone else) so using the versions I ship will save you a lot of 
testing as they are known to work well with MailScanner.

Feel free to live on the bleeding edge, but don't blame me if you get cut!
