Powerful virus/spam scanning framework for mail gateways
Maintained by: kkobb@skylinecorp.com search for ports maintained by this maintainer
Port Added: 18 Jun 2003 03:11:55
License: not specified in port


MailScanner is a complete e-mail security system designed for use on 
e-mail gateways. It protects against viruses, and detects attacks against 
e-mail client packages (such as Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora). It can 
also detect almost all unsolicited commercial e-mail (spam) passing through 
it and respond to all incidents in a wide variety of ways. 

Not only can it scan for known viruses, but it can also protect against unknown 
viruses hidden inside e-mail attachments by refusing entry to attachments whose 
filenames match any given pattern. This can include generic patterns that trap 
filenames attempting to hide the true filename extension (e.g. ".txt.vbs"). 

It is superior to many commercial packages in its ability to handle attacks 
against itself, such as Denial Of Service attacks caused by messages containing
the "Zip of Death". It is easy to install into an existing e-mail gateway, 
requiring very little knowledge of sendmail and no change to an existing 
sendmail configuration. 

MailScanner itself is entirely open source, but it uses widely known commercial
virus scanning packages at its core. The other software it uses is all high 
quality open source software, leading to a system that can be trusted for 
performance and reliability.

Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2011-06-18
    Affects: users of mail/mailscanner
    Author: crees@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      mail/mailscanner no longer requires running of any renew-* targets to
      update the config files / wrapper scripts; it is now automatically
      performed as the port is installed -- these targets have been removed.
    
      As an added bonus, the binary package now performs these steps as well,
      in case you don't have a portstree handy.
    
      Before upgrading, please backup your PREFIX/etc/MailScanner,
      PREFIX/share/MailScanner and PREFIX/libexec/MailScanner if you
      have customised any of these directories, just in case.

Say hello to the new "net-mgmt" category.  There are probably more

this, first, pass.

Add mailscanner 4.21.9, a powerful virus/spam scanning framework
for Sendmail and Exim.

MailScanner is a complete e-mail security system designed for use on
e-mail gateways. It protects against viruses, and detects attacks against
e-mail client packages (such as Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora). It can
also detect almost all unsolicited commercial e-mail (spam) passing through
it and respond to all incidents in a wide variety of ways.

Not only can it scan for known viruses, but it can also protect against
unknown viruses hidden inside e-mail attachments by refusing entry to
attachments whose  filenames match any given pattern. This can include generic
patterns that trap filenames attempting to hide the true filename extension
(e.g. ".txt.vbs").
