    I decided to try clamav. I instaled it yesterday. Today, when i went to check my emails, they weren't there. Clamav just erased all my emails, not just the ones with virus... he erased plain text emails.

    What can I do? Is there any way to get them back?

    I believe this was discussed in the main ClamAV thread in these forums. If you have the module set to delete viruses, it will delete your entire mbox if it finds a virus in it. Set it to clean messages instead and you won't have this problem. I say this without having tested it. Someone else will chime in if I'm all wet.

    Personally, I never liked the ClamAV module in CPANEL. I prefer ClamAV and MailScanner instead. It is much more flexible and is automated.
