Are you talking in general here? I doubt very much that performance of
Postfix is better than Sendmail when it comes to MailScanner due to
the difference in mail files (Sendmails are split between queue and
data). Since MailScanner needs to modify every single mail with at
least inserting a header it should be slower on Postfix handling the
whole file. Anyone tested it?
