Has anyone been able to integrate this into MailScanner yet?  Anyone looked
at it?

I just received a quote from CDW and the price is very good.  They license
by server
and not by mailbox/email address so 5 servers was under $150.00 US for a
year of
Security for Mail Servers (the middle one in the link below):

The software does way more than needed when you already have MailScanner but
I would like to use the AV engine if it's worth anything.  Anyone have an
with bitdefender AV in the past?

I'm running McAffee that is end-of-life soon so I'm willing to spend some
"free" time
this holiday season to learn how to integrate this into MS and contribute it
back as
long as I'm not waisting my time.

P.S.  Jules, if you want to give me a quote to do this, contact me offline.
 I bet you
could whip this out in no time and I would know that it's done right.
