mailscanner-4.x for Debian
--------------------------

To actually get MailScanner working you have to modify your MTA's
configuration. Look for a README.mymta file for an example
installation guide for your MTA. If there is none, you have todo some
research on the net or http://mailscanner.info.

New/updated installation guides are welcome! Just open a bugreport.

- Debian's MailScanner uses /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf
  for spamassassin not /etc/spamassassin/mailscanner.cf.

- Configuring Spam Headers.
  When setting %org-name% in /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf, you have
  to make this change in /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf as well.

- On a high-load mail-system set run_nice in /etc/default/mailscanner to 0.
	Also increase the "Max Children" in /etc/MailScanner.conf to
	something appropriate.

- Install a virus-scanner if you expect MailScanner to filter virus-mails!

- MailScanner uses spamassassins perl module internally. So there is no
  way to use spamd with MailScanner.

- Using razor < 2.75 with MailScanner can cause problems because razor
	places its logfile into the queue directory see #305239, #295727
