    Alot of clients on my server are getting viruses coming through into their email box. Is there any anti-virus software compatable with Cpanel and its services ?

    Your clients should be using AV on their systems. You may put yourself at risk for lawsuits if you offer AV scanning server-side and one of your clients becomes infected.

    With all that being said, there is an unsupported AV solution available at http://layer1.cpanel.net/ . There are update instructions for it at http://www.cpanelfaq.com/006/4.html

    I would not personally recommend it, but a number of people are running it. Some people see it as a value add for clients. If it will get you more customers and you are willing to accept the overhead then go for it.

    You can filter files based upon type and/or extension. If you wanted to block only zip files (instead of all archives) you could edit the filename.rules.conf file and add the following entry:

    deny \.zip$ Prohibited file type Zip files not allowed
