MailScanner 4.59.4 released

There are new stable release of MailScanner, version 4.59.4. The new release now support clamscan and clamd anti virus. It also support avast anti virus. For more detailed what new in MailScanner 5.59.4, you can read it here.

With the new clamd support, we hope that we can have significant improvement in virus scanning.

– – support for the clamd virus scanner, with the result that you can have
fast virus scanning without relying on the 3rd party Mail::ClamAV perl
module. (Julian Field )

If you are using MailWatch, than you need to modify the functions.php in your MailWatch web folder (ie /var/www/html/mailscanner) – thanks to Rick Cooper.

Find this line

case ‘clamav’:
define(VIRUS_REGEX, ‘/(.+) contains (\S+)/’);
break
;

Then insert below the “break;” line:

case ‘clamd’:
define(VIRUS_REGEX, ‘/(.+) contains (\S+)/’);
break;

Now Mailwatch will recognize the new Anti Virus.

    Nice find! However a lot of email sites have virus protection.

    MailScanner is much more for company mail server, not individual.
    Where they can manage their own anti spam setting, manage their own black list or white list.
    For me my self, I’m quite happy for anti spam/anti virus from gmail :-).
