    You can install Mailscanner from layer1 and that includes clam av. Works really well for us.

    Is there a way to install this from WHM or must do it manualy ?

    and what about configuration, any need of that or default installation will do good ?

    You have to install it from ssh as root, but it requires no additional setup beyond running the install script.

    The installation from layer1 makes all the necessary modifications for you.

    it reaches this step
    installing perl modules and stays there for a long time with no change !

    edit:
    i i think i fixed the problem.
    i opened the install file and did the "installing perl modules" my self and removed that line

    now how can i be sure every thing is beeing scaned ?

    What is "a long time"? Are you exiting out of the install?

    any way to read the info else then go to the log file ? is there like a cpanel interface or i think webmin has that
    also this MailScanner is version 4.22-5 can it be upgraded to 4.24 with our problems ?

    Maybe you won't believe this:

    While at Installing Perl Modules... (for about 10 minutes), I hit the Enter button once and it continued installing and completed the process.
