The Debian and Ubuntu MailScanner packages have not been maintained for a long time. Recently both distributions dropped support for MailScanner within their repo's.

The Baruwa project provides up to date deb packages for both distributions.

Packages are available for:

  • squeeze
  • wheezy
  • sid
  • lucid
  • maverick
  • natty
  • oneiric
  • precise
  • quantal


To use the packages you need to enable the baruwa apt repo.

cat > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/baruwa.list << 'EOF'
deb precise main

Change "precise" to your specific release name

Add the repo's GPG key

wget -O - | apt-key add -

Then run

apt-get update
apt-get install mailscanner
