No, that is true.... Then again, there are a lot of things that
MailScanner doesn't do *by itself*.

Ok. You lose out on a pretty impressive tool, but that is entirely

You needn't look that far... It is the QuarantineReport script (a
tarball linked as the final link in the first section
(MailScanner...)). This excerpt is from the INSTALL file:
QuarantineReport is a small application that's intended to:
* Create a daily report for each user who has messages in MailScanner
* Create a web link to view the message in Quarantine
* Provide a link to allow the user to release the message in Quarantine
* Email the report to the user
The report will contain this information for each message in Quarantine:
Subject: subject_of message
The application can aslo verify that recipient is a valid user by checking
a file or performing an LDAP search.
If you run Sendmail or Exim, this seems to be viable for what you want
to do. If not (Postfix, Zmail, Qmail...) you'll probably need go with
MailWatch, or... hack it up to fit your MTA.
