I'd try getting yum repo definitions for all repos you MIGHT want to use
(rpmforge, atrpms, kbs, epel, ...) in /etc/yum.repos.d/ with all but the
standard/trusted ones disabled by default. Could then run some variant
# yum --enable \* install postfix mailscanner spamassassin bind9 \
clamav ssh webmin webmin-core logwatch libspf2-0 libmail-spf-query-perl
Yum will tell you what it wants to install, and what repos it has
chosen. Can also use the yum "search" or "list" options to see what is
available with all repos enabled as above. Could then try selectively
enabling repos to get the combination of packages you want you want.

Seems some packages are out there:
The second link claims to be compatible with RHEL5 (no OS version was
specified by the OP) and possibly other distros - can't vouch for it.
I'd be prone to try rebuilding from the 2nd SRPM if I wanted to install
mailscanner from a package.
