    Greetings folks.

    I found there is a nice patch which adds the hooks of the Anti-Virus system scanner into the Exim itself so you just need to add the anti-virus program of your choice into the exim configuration and let it rip.

    It seems to be a nice solution instead of using the addon programs like Amavis or Mailscanner or Pyscan. Right now..I am waiting for the word from the Developers if the Exim is modified version or stock version before going ahead with some development work to patch the exim package with the patch and then do testing of the anti-virus programs to see how it performs.

    If you wondering which I am referring to, it is located here:

    So Developers...mind help me out here? Thanks. Support Ticket Number:

    Not a developer although i do know that the ver of exim which cpanel runs is modifered since stock exim 4.20 runs into trouble if you got >1000 fd's open see

    For what its worth i run it on some non-cpanel systems (and the other main exim patch sa-exim on others) w/sophie and its works dandy however note its tricky to do per recipent stuff due to the fact due to the fact the exim only runs the exim data acl once per message

    your best bet would be to d/l the exim src

    It's modified but it will be great if Nick could integrate it. I think it should be faster than the others. Support Ticket Number:
