Use mailscanner for content protection

.... As in the MCP feature of MailScanner? (MCP = Message Content
Protection... A misnomer, IMO:-)

What that basically is is another instantiation of SpamAssassin, whith
a disjunct set of SA-rules. Used to be very popular back in the days,
before Jules implemented custom SpamAssassin rule actions, which
pretty much removed the need for the MCP implementation (you can
create the logic separately, with just one SA instance running which
is, from a performance and manageability standpoint, much better). I'm
pretty sure you can find examples of how to implement this in the mail
archives from way back when (years!). MCP as such is described on the
official website (if it hasn't been removed recently), in the book and
somewhat on the wiki.
