    Worked on the 13th, update came from CPanel apparently and on the 14th it no longer works, server has delivered no mail since.

    Any ideas?

    The error is ...

    2003-02-17 11:24:44 18kqsd-0004uu-00 Error in message_filter file: failed to expand &${perl{amavis_filter_scan}{$message_id}{$sender_address}{$recipients}}& in filter file: Undefined subroutine &main::amavis_filter_scan called.\n

    It would be nice if you tell us what version of cpanel and OS you're using ..

    Sorry about that ...

    RH 7.3
    Cpanel 5.3.0-S116

    I was running Cpanel 5.3.0-R117 but my host downgraded the server to see if it would cure this problem.

    Virus scanning was working fine before the 14th and what looks like an update from CPanel.

    Add this line to the bottom of exim.pl:

    do '/usr/share/amavis/amavis-filter';

    Or run the patcheximconf file from the original amavis install.

    Thanks guys, the patcheximconf worked and next time I'll know it should fix the issues.

    Now if only CPanel would roll the virus scanner into the main code rather than having it as an addon. It's pretty much required nowadays to compete.

    I'm sure it will be back when Nick is done testing the new versions of everything. What you have to realize is that sometimes it's harder to debug something if you put it all together at once. If you slowly add things it's easier to debug because you know exactly what code you just added that is causing the problem.
