You seem to need additional repositories for doing so.

There is no mailscanner rpm for CentOS I'm aware of, as the author seems
to be against packaging (I only picked that up during some discussion,
so don't ask me for further details).

Spamassassin is in the base repository, newer versions are in the
(trusted) rpmforge repository. logwatch is installed by default anyway.
bind is in the base repository (and we only ship bind9, so there is no
need to distinguish between versions). The two spf packages are in
rpmforge again (perl-Mail-SPF and perl-Mail-SPF-Query). sshd is
installed by default, postfix is available from base. 

webmin is installable from rpmforge, but you don't want that version,
as it is too old (no need for webmin on a mail gateway anyway, if you
ask me). 

Instead of mailscanner you could use amavisd-new, which again is
available from rpmforge. clamav is also available from rpmforge (but
split across several packages, you probably want clamd).

See <http://wiki.centos.org/Repositories/> for more information about
additional repositories.

Cheers,

Ralph
