Generally speaking... MailScanner most often use a command line
scanner, so don't really need the "Mail-server" variants. Some seem to
try "cover" that in their licenses though, so I suppose one need look
very carefully at the wording (perhaps contact a lawyer, to help with
My concern is usually more on the effectiveness of it, rather than at
the cost... No matter how cheap it is, if it is cr*p... I *will* not
use it:-).

Do you perhaps have a site license for your windoze boxes? That might
actually include all you need already:-). ... I get McAfee that way;).
