MTA: postfix 2.6.1 from Mail-SpamAssassin-3.2.5.tar.gz
Followed postfix home documentation to install
I double checked install instructions to the extent of my understanding of them.

installed MailScanner from MailScanner-4.77.6-4.rpm.tar.gz following
book and Julian's email.

installed spamassassin and Clamav (Clam-0.95.1-SA-3.2.5) from

OS is Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.3 (Tikanga) 64bit

Server is HP Proliant DL360 G5, 4/4 core cpu with eight 1024 MB 667 MHz DIMM
