True. I used to go with Fedora before, but i tried Debian and i loooved 
the package-managment, so i put up a new box with Postfix, Mailscanner, 
clamav etc, and was satisfied with the ease of installation. Though, i 
thought it was far behind with versions.

I just want to find a repository for getting the latest stable versions 
of the programs above. :)
