Have you moved on to something else?  What did you choose?

Having climbed much of the learning curve with Zmailer, I have stuck
with it.  With modifications to your MailScanner hooks, it has been
working good for years.  I think I have a dozen instances of it on
various servers.

On the other hand, it hasn't been included in the Debian packages for
years now, and I think the rest of the world thinks it is dead.  I'm
pretty sure Matti is still out there, and would still write fixes if
they were necessary.
