That is the problem I was referring to.* It would seem involve both mailscanner and postfix.
Anyway, basically postfix now has the ability to write files to the queue and then hold them there.* MailScanner (or any other scanner that wants to make use of it) can then safely grab the file, send it through scanners, then tell postfix to send it on (or delete it, quarantine it, or tag it if necessary).* The only criticism I've really seen of MailScanner (though I'm sure someone could come up with more if they wanted to) is how it used to rip the emails out of postfix (which would have made mailscanner a definite non-option for me too), but the new method of swapping around the emails takes care of that.
The advantages of MailScanner are easier configuration and management, an awesome (optional) web interface, and performance.* Feature sets look fairly identical, except I know you can do keyword filtering (a must-have in my company) with MCP in maillscanner but I don't see that their is a way to do it with amavisd-new.
Of course, MailScanner is just MY preference and just thought I would mention it.
