Ah, the sweet smell of misleading bullshit.

I've been running Postfix with MailScanner for two years, both here and as a 
University mail handler for half a million messages a day.

No worries.

Latest versions of both are ALWAYS a good plan, but past that I've never seen an 
instance of corruption or delay based on this model.
