This might be slightly off topic for this list, but do any of you have a feel for how amavisd-new compares to MailScanner? I know amavisd-new is in rpmforge repositories, and MailScanner as far as I know is not in any standard CentOS repositories, so that certainly makes amavisd-new more convenient. However, we have been using MailScanner since late 2006 based on a howto that was published at hughesjr.com. We recently upgraded our server to CentOS 5, and I have been preparing a page for the wiki documenting the installation. I know that in the past postfix developers did not care for MailScanner because of the interface they used, but as I understand that was fixed several years ago. A quick google on comparisons turned up a lot of old information that probably isn't relevant now, but I did find a couple of opinions that might be worthwhile: 1. amavisd-new may occasionally lose a message, while MailScanner (from my own experience) never allows a mail to be deleted from the incoming queue until it is in the delivery queue. 2. amavisd-new processes can take a lot of memory. Does anybody on this list have better information based on what they have seen or read? Thanks.
