it is possible to use mailscanner as smtpd-proxy in postfix like amavisd?
currently the state is, that postfix accept a mail with SMTP-Code 250 and hold the mail in his queue.

i have the whish, to scan and reject with the SMTP-Code 5XX if a mail is a spam or have malware content before postfix confirm the message with 250.

this setup call smtp-proxy in amavisd. the opposite setup call content-filter.

does the smtp-proxy setup exist for mailscanner too?

the big advantage is, that i dont need to confirm a mail first with 250 and in a case of spam to create a bounce to inform the sender, that his mail is not accepted. 


Mit freundlichen Grüßen
