    Hello,
    I have just installed the Clamav plugin so we can scan files inside the hosting disk space of my customers.
    However I don´t want to use to scan incoming email, how can I disable that?

    Howdy,

    You can choose to or not to scan your files in WHM >> Main >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Manager and search for:

    ** Scan messages from authenticated senders (exiscan). [?]

    and toggle it on or off as needed.

    As for scanning folders and the like take a look at this command.

    Code:
    clamscan --debug ./
    
    Feel free to change the path as needed. I like using debug because you see what it's doing but you may choose not to use it.

    Thanks!
