MailScanner is being used by Novell as their anti-spam tool of choice in their new 'Open Workgroup Suite Small Business Edition' software package.

The Novell Open Workgroup Suite Small Business Edition is a Linux-based desktop-to-server solution tailored to meet the needs of small businesses. It provides productivity tools and a networking infrastructure at a fraction of the cost of alternative, proprietary-only software bundles.

To further help customers reduce cost and improve security, Novell's suite also includes Novell-supported open source components, including MailScanner for spam filtering, Amanda for backup and archiving, the ClamAV anti-virus toolkit, HylaFAX fax server, iptables for firewall, the OpenVPN virtual private network and TightVNC for remote control of network clients. The suite is also supported by popular business software applications certified to work with SUSE Linux Enterprise.

MailScanner is a free anti-virus and anti-spam filter, developed by Julian Field, Postmaster in the School of Electronics and Computer Science. MailScanner protects over 1 billion emails every day and has been downloaded over 1 million times. Version 4.64 of MailScanner was released on 1 October 2007.
