Mailscanner initial Setup help

maybe this could be your solution:

Postfix supports instances. So if you configure one instance on server A
and B to receive the mails and forward them to the Mailscanner
and another instance on server A and B to receive the mails from
Mailscanner an store them in the users mailboxes?


    Why multiple Postfix instances

Postfix is a general-purpose mail system that can be configured to serve
a variety of needs. Examples of Postfix applications are:


    Local mail submission for shell users and system processes.


    Incoming (MX host) email from the Internet.


    Outbound mail relay for a corporate network.


    Authenticated submission for roaming users.


    *Before/after content-filter mail. *
