Please don't "Top Post". It makes following the thread more difficult
than it needs to be.
As for 'Mailscanner', the only real problem is that it is not on
Wietse's Christmas card list. Mailscanner is regularly lambasted on
the Postfix forum. You might want to ask your question regarding its
suitability for your particular configuration there, and possibly on
the Mailscanner forum directly. Obviously, these two opposing groups
disagree as to whom to attribute any problems that arise between the
interaction of these two programs.
