Mailscanner was originally designed on sendmail, but it seems that all are
fairly equal as to the support they get. All but qmail, which you will have to
go to openprotect to get a mailscanner that is patched to work with qmail.

I am thinking of playing with alternate MTA's also, but just so I have a
better background with design and support. Every MTA has its pluses and
minuses, you should pick a MTA on its own merits, as mailscanner works
basically the same on all of them.


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