MailScanner is an email virus scanner, vulnerability protector, and spam tagger. It supports the Postfix, Sendmail, Exim and ZMailer MTAs, and the Sophos, McAfee, F-Prot, F-Secure, CommandAV, InoculateIT, Inoculan 4.x, Kaspersky, Nod32, AntiVir, RAV, Panda, and Clam anti-virus scanners. It supports SpamAssassin for highly successful spam identification. It is specifically designed to handle denial of service attacks. It is very easy to install, and requires no changes at all to your file. It is designed to be lightweight, and won't grind your mail system to a halt with its load; a good PC can process over 1.5 million messages per day. It can be integrated into any email system, regardless of the software in use.
