New MailScanner Front-End (MSFE) v9.00

Changes:

  • Added BETA support for DirectAdmin on RHEL/CentOS/CL v7 and v8. This only uses the new Exim named queue method which requires Exim v4.93+
  • Added support for SpamBox delivery to <mailbox>.spam folder (SpamBox) on cPanel and DirectAdmin
  • Added support for Exim named queue method for MailScanner. Targeted, better use of resources, independent of cPanel configuration. Not all outgoing email scanned or logged to mailcontrol. Requires Exim v4.93+
  • Added MySQL v8.0 support
  • RHEL/CentOS/CL v8.1 OS support
  • Removed use of Mail::Sender as it is now deprecated
  • Moved /usr/mscpanel to /usr/msfe (symlink added for backwards compatibility)
  • MailControl UI now performs to/from sorts by domain and then email address rather than just email address

New MailScanner Installer (msinstall) v5.00

Changes:

  • Added BETA support for DirectAdmin on RHEL/CentOS/CL v7 and v8. This application will NOT function on DirectAdmin servers without our MailScanner Front-End product
  • Update MailScanner code from v5.3.3 source and apply WTTW fixups
  • Added support for new Exim named queues method for MailScanner when using MSFE – requires Exim v4.93+
  • RHEL/CentOS/CL v8.1 OS support
  • Moved /usr/mscpanel to /usr/msfe (symlink added for backwards compatibility)
  • Renamed /usr/msfe/mscpanel.pl to /usr/msfe/msrules.pl (symlink added for backwards compatibility)
  • Added run of msrules.pl and sa-update to mailscanner_daily.cron

Coming Soon…

Wondering what we’re currently developing?

We are getting close to releasing new versions of our MailScanner installer and MailScanner Front-End. This will include:

  1. The latest version of MailScanner from source with our tweaks
  2. Spambox support (spam is delivered to the users Spam subfolder) which is enabled for the installation, plus on a per domain basis by the user
  3. DirectAdmin beta support, this includes installing MailScanner plus our Admin and end-User UI’s
  4. New exim integration for cPanel (and required for DirectAdmin) using Exims Named Queues. This allows for a very simple Exim integration which only scans relayed SMTP email. This reduces server load and can improve stability because: It only requires a single exim process, rather than the current two; only SMTP email is scanned (not outgoing via the exim binary); does not rely on Control Panel integration setup for Exim
  5. MySQL v8 support
  6. RHEL/CentOS/CL v8 support

The development work has been completed, testing and bug fixing is currently in progress and we’re hoping to release by the end of this month.
