    Yup. You need to upgrade both MailScanner and ClamAV. The version of ClamAV that you're using is likely to be 0.60 which is no longer supported as the virus definition database format changed in version 0.70 and they stopped support for the old one on 1 September 2004.

    thanks, you are quite correct.

    The scripts worked a treat.

    Regards,

    My MailScanner script doesn't do anything with ClamAV.

    This is what I do to clear out the old ClamAV and install to the distributions default directory:
    Code:
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/bin/clam*
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/sbin/clam*
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/lib/libclam*
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/share/clam*
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/include/clam*
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/bin/freshclam*
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/etc/clamav*
    
    useradd clamav
    wget http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/clamav/clamav-0.75.1.tar.gz
    tar -xzf clamav-*
    cd clamav-*
    ./configure
    make
    make install
    freshclam
    Note that the URL is just one for that version of ClamAV - you should vsist the ClamAV site to get the latest/nearest download link.
