Hi,
We are completely new to linux so please forgive my ignorance

We are looking to build a server which will run Mailscanner software. The software runs on any unix-based system.

Can I use linux for this?

If so, where can I obtain the software?

The software does work with linux based on documentation on their site.  (this page references Red Hat 9 - an old linux distro http://wiki.mailscanner.info/doku.php?id=maq:index#how_to_setup_a_mailscanner_server

As for where you can get linux, go to http://distrowatch.com/ and pick one.  I would suggest you try first with Ubuntu Server and see if Mailscanner is an app in it's software repository - if it is, it should initially install easily (configuration may be another story).  

If it isn't, you can probably try Fedora or CentOS - Red Hat no longer issues a distro under it's Red Hat name for free - they have the PAID Red Hat Enterprise Linux.  Fedora IS a free version that is essentially owned by Red Hat.  CentOS is a version that another organization issues using the source from Red Hat Enterprise Linux (Every version of Linux must have it's source issued freely).

owensleftfoot - what exactly is your point - I think he knows the web site of the product...  

You do know that posting of links with ZERO explanation is not appropriate.

owensleftfoot,

If you were not aware, posting of links with ZERO explanations is not appropriate.  

Even a brief explanation like "You can download Mailscanner from ..." would have removed the extreme ambiguity from your posting.
