I have doubts, with a serious argument. MailScanner can not reject virus
mails (or for other reasons like a high spam value) during the data
period due to it's design. (And bounced after initial acceptance is just
awful.) A milter has definitely hard advantages over this. And
MimeDefang is much more flexible in this regard.
