RE: mail antivirus


The solution depends of what use you're making of the mailserver.
If it's for a home network with only a few users, clamav + amavisd-new is a
good solution. If you want a mail server for a small (or even large)
business unit, have a look at maia mailguard (, a complete
virus and spam management system, which combines amavisd-new + SpamAssassin
+ dspam.
