    MailScanner configuration for cPanel ?

    I've downloaded and installed MailScanner using:
    http://www.configserver.com/free/mailscanner.html

    Now.. can anyone tell me a good "how to" to configure MailScanner to avoid a resource hog and to ensure email can work ok and stop incoming spam as well ?

    Thanks.

    Did you know that cPanel currently integrates spamassassin and clam-av out of the box? What did you want to accomplish with MailScanner beyond that?

    I use to have lot of CPU problems caused by Spamassassin, it was a resource hog.

    MailScanner is likely to cause those same load problems if it is used at the same level as spamassassin. I have not heard that is particularly more efficient. Did you try tweaking spamassassin at all?

    I recently paid the $40 or so to have ConfigServer install their mailscanner service and it was just about the best money I've ever spent.
