We use this in a production environment on Debian 6.0 for the last 6 months. This currently runs in front of our exchange server. Currently it runs on a small KVM virtual machine 2GB RAM, 20GB hdd, 1 CPU core. Runs great for us! Love the statistical graphs and rolling log view. This box replaced a well known hardware appliance and so far we are very pleased.
This is great stuff. If you know your business around email infrastructures this product is a no brainer. Kudos to Marius Gologan (The man behind this software), excellent work. For those who whine or rant about it, please take a look in the support forum, it's free.
ZERO STARS... Do not plan install this in a production environment. I won't pay for support since the install fails on a key component. CLAMAV will tag every single email with "Not Scanned!" if the clamav virus definition database is a single minor revision ahead of what scrollout says is equal to Debian stable. Debian users know this can be an issue. There is no way in the forums to disable the subject line tagging in the Debian install. YOU MUST NOT ATTEMPT TO INSTALL ON ANYTHING NEWER THAN UBUNTU 13.04 or scrolloutf1 will simply not install. No where does any documentation indicate this as of this review. Overall, the install is fairly straight forward, however a key component (clamav) can fail and will fail over time (via release revisions) and there is no way around this according to their forums and some evil google searching. This failure tags every single legitimate email with "Not Scanned".
Very Impressed with this software, and the support! Very Helpful community! Plus reported a new vulnerability with libc and scrollout was updated to resolve this within a few hours! Thanks!!
