I just downloaded and installed the latest release of Ubuntu (version
8.04). When you run aptitude (not the easiest program in the world to
run), you wind up with a build of MailScanner 4.58.9 which doesn't work.
Pretty poor show. Did it not occur them to test it, at least to run
"MailScanner --help" to see if it will even start up?
I have documented what I have been given as a fix on
www.mailscanner.info, but this hardly instils confidence in the system
(Ubuntu or MailScanner :-(
They are shipping a version which is well over a year old, surrounded by
more up to date versions of other software so that it doesn't even work
How do we go about getting the Ubuntu build of MailScanner updated? I
have no experience with it or Debian, apart from the knowledge that
building Debian packages is apparently very hard.
Is there a more recent build available anywhere?
Thanks folks, let's see if we can get this one sorted between us.
