MailScanner is an email virus scanner, vulnerability protector, and spam tagger. It supports the Postfix, Sendmail, Exim, Qmail, and ZMailer MTAs, and the Sophos, McAfee, F-Prot, F-Secure, CommandAV, InoculateIT, Inoculan, eTrust, Kaspersky, Nod32, AntiVir, BitDefender, RAV, Panda, DrWeb, ClamAV, and other anti-virus scanners. It uses SpamAssassin for highly successful spam identification, and is designed to handle denial of service attacks. It will detect password-protected zip files and apply filename checking to their contents. It is very easy to install, requires no changes at all to your sendmail.cf file, is designed to be lightweight, and won't grind your mail system to a halt with its load. It can be integrated into any email system, regardless of the software in use.
Mail2sh makes it possible to carry out shell commands by email. Email is sent to a particular user on your host and the commands will be carried out if the user and password given matches ones in /etc/passwd. Commands are executed with the user's privileges, and combined with a PGP module ensures a certain level of security for use. Note that the system is not natively encrypted, so use of an encryption mechanism is highly recommended for security reasons.
IVS Milter is a virus, spam, and content milter. It makes use of the antivirus package ClamAV, and can also seamlessly integrate SpamAssassin (either spamc or libspamc). IVS Milter is also plugin based and currently supports virus scanning, spam scanning, content-type matching, attachment type matching, and attachment filename matching.
BitDefender Mail Protection is a powerful mail filtering solution that provides antivirus and antispam capabilities to Linux mail servers. Both sent and received messages are scanned in real-time, avoiding possible infections and preventing anyone from sending an infected message. It claims a 100% detection rate for all viruses in the wild through its powerful scanning engines, which are certified by prestigious testing labs.
mxallowd is a daemon for Linux Netfilter (using libnetfilter-queue) and BSD pf (using pflog) which implements a slightly improved nolisting mechanism. It requires your name server to be configured to return two MX IP addresses, and the one with higher priority must not run a mail server on port 25. mxallowd blocks attempts to connect to the mail server unless the sender tries to connect to the first mail server before the second. Since most spammers will attempt direct connections to each mail server, they will be blocked.
spfmilter is a milter (sendmail mail filter) which implements the Sender Policy Framework (SPF). SPF is a strategy for preventing junk mail. The SMTP standard for email allows anyone to forge anyone else's email address. SPF verifies that the Sender address of an email message matches (according to some policy) the client IP address that submitted it.
