Hello,

You may want to add -i option to your clamscan cron so it will only log infected files making the mail message much smaller.
This correct;

00 17 * * * /usr/bin/clamscan - /home/*/public_html -l /tmp/virus/clamscan.log --move=/tmp/virus

or

00 17 * * * /usr/bin/clamscan -i /home/*/public_html -i /tmp/virus/clamscan.log --move=/tmp/virus

Hello,

Changed to;

/usr/bin/clamscan /home/*/public_html -ir --move=/tmp/virus

I think solved this issue. Thank you
Yes, the original message failed due to the size of the message. Your updated command is a better option for output in an email.

Thank you.
