Wow, 10 years.  Congratulations!  MailScanner is an incredible asset to me.  I watch the spamassassin mailing list and often see queries for help and think to myself 'Oh, simple, in MailScanner just - oh wait.  They're just using spamassasin, not MailScanner.'  It adds such flexibility to managing email that it almost boggles the mind.  

And the features keep coming!  With every release there's some new functionality that scratches someone's itch but coupled with excellent comments in the config file and the sane defaults it isn't hard to tune it to one's own environment.

I can't imagine running an antispam/virus gateway without it...
