Hello,

My server is running Mailscanner v5.0.2 since 2016 and does not update to latest versions.
I checked mailscanner.info website and it is being continuously updated and current version is 5.1.1-1 released in 25 August 2018.

Would you please inform how can I fix Mailscanner Front End in order for the update button appear and let me update Mailscanner to latest version?

Thanks for the help

We use our own forked version of MailScanner with the MailScanner Front-End and do not update our package to the latest official MailScanner version unless there are compelling new features or fixes.

Does that means that in almost 3 years there is no significant update in Mailscanner?

Is it still being actively developed?

Yes, that's correct.

Not for significant new features, no. In general it is only being worked on to fix bugs but not add to the feature set. We fix bugs affecting exim and cPanel servers in our own forked version.
