Mailscanner takes some 'extra' work to update and compile correctly for Ubuntu. I succeeded at doing all this with the latest Mailscanner source release some 5 months ago.

The best way I found was to get the old 'out-of-date' Mailscanner Ubuntu packages, then use that for a new build [template] with the latest source - direct from mailscanner. This means editing the Ubuntu defaults - then merging the new mailscanner parts. I think that took me about 2 hours to research and 'debug. However, it all worked well!

The thing to watch out for is the mailscanner preference to use the default /opt directory - which is not meant for Ubuntu.

  Hi Everyone,

  how well does mailscanner work on ubuntu, i see alot of outdated packages available for debian/ubuntu. Will MailScanner provide better support for ubuntu in the future?

  which is currently the best package to use, the standard tar.gz or must i search the apt repos for mailscanner packages.

  Thank you.
