Well, like I said, I haven't had any problems as yet.  The portability of 
milter might be an issue for some, in that the MTA has to support it.  Then 
there's the issue of versions.  I guess i could rebuild the latest sendmail, 
but it's not something I relish.

FWIW, MailScanner advertises Postfix, Exim, ZMailer, and Sendmail 

But if there were a good installation wrapper for MIMEdefang and my older 
sendmail on my SPARC box then I wouldn't have a problem switching over, if 
the features are worth it.  I have found MailScanner to be quite flexible in 
its configuration, thus far.  Time will tell.
