    tailing the exim_mainlog I am receiving a flood of:

    MailScanner E-Mail Virus Scanner version 4.28.6 starting...

    To my knowledge I am only using exim and clamav so I am not sure why MailScanner is showing up nor the flood.

    I have located a /usr/mailscanner/ directory. My concern is removing it without removing the reference to it. I have cleared out the exim rules via WHM advance edit. Forced a reinstall of exim and spamassassin yet the exim_mainlog is still showing repeated

    For reference, I renamed /usr/mailscanner to /usr/mailscanner-old and forced a reinstall of exim once more and it appears that I am no longer receiving the MailScanner E-Mail Virus Scanner version 4.28.6 starting lines in the exim_mainlog anymore oddly enough.

    Although the directory no longer exists, after 24 hours under WHM CPU/Memory/MySQL Usage I am receiving:
