    Hi Guys ,

    Can you help me to make MailScanner work?
    right now i want to use MailScanner with NOD32 but i think i have configured it correctly but it doesn't work yet.

    There's always this message after i restart MailScanner (restart because MailScanner doesn't run)....after restart it will run not more than 1 minute and it stops again.

    This is the /var/log/maillog

    Dec 8 20:40:31 host MailScanner[3750]: MailScanner child caught a SIGHUP

    And this is my MailScanner.Conf

    I upload it here http://www.nod32th.com/george/MailScanner.conf


    Please see and help to make it work

    The problem is that the procedures on the internet for installing the rpm version of MailScanner are mostly out of date. cPanel now uses a split spool directory and you need to take that into account when configuring MailScanner. This means that you either need to follow the procedures in this post:
    http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?p=150118

    Or, dispose of it, and use my installation procedure instead:

    Did you configure the rules files to scan your domains (or run the mscpanel.pl script)?

    Hi Chirpy ,

    After i run "sh install.sh" , it installs and everything seems to be fine.
    And after that i configured Mailscanner.conf ,

    There are tow things i changed is "Virus Scanning = yes" and "Virus Scanner = nod32-1.99"

    I have nod32lfs installed in my server , and i think it works fine ..

    But it doesn't work with MailScanner , can you send me some of the log that showing that it's working?

    Only Log i see about mailscanner is

    "Dec 10 18:49:05 host MailScanner[9541]: MailScanner E-Mail Virus Scanner version 4.36.4 starting...
    Dec 10 18:49:06 host MailScanner[9541]: Using locktype = posix
    Dec 10 18:49:06 host MailScanner[9541]: Creating hardcoded struct_flock subroutine for linux (Linux-type)
    Dec 10 18:49:15 host MailScanner[9630]: MailScanner E-Mail Virus Scanner version 4.36.4 starting...
    Dec 10 18:49:16 host MailScanner[9630]: Using locktype = posix
    Dec 10 18:49:16 host MailScanner[9630]: Creating hardcoded struct_flock subroutine for linux (Linux-type) "


    I don't know that i did something wrong or not.

    Please advise ,

    George

    Chirpy ,

    and one thing i saw is this too

    "root@host [/var/spool/exim_incoming]# ls -l
    total 20
    drwxr-x--- 5 mailnull mail 4096 Dec 10 19:08 ./
    drwxr-xr-x 22 root root 4096 Dec 10 19:08 ../
    drwxr-x--- 2 mailnull mail 4096 Dec 10 19:08 db/
    drwxr-x--- 64 mailnull mail 4096 Dec 10 19:08 input/
    drwxr-x--- 2 mailnull mail 4096 Dec 10 19:08 msglog/
    root@host [/var/spool/exim_incoming]# cd ..

    root@host [/var/spool]# cd exim
    root@host [/var/spool/exim]# ls -l
    total 3748
    drwxr-x--- 6 mailnull mail 4096 Aug 12 15:15 ./
    drwxr-xr-x 22 root root 4096 Dec 10 19:08 ../
    drwxr-x--- 2 mailnull mail 4096 Dec 8 09:58 db/
    -rw-r--r-- 1 mailnull mail 6 Dec 10 19:18 exim-daemon.pid
    drwxr-x--- 62 mailnull mail 2699264 Dec 10 19:34 input/
    drwxr-x--- 62 mailnull mail 1110016 Dec 10 19:18 msglog/
    drwxr-x--- 2 mailnull mail 4096 Dec 8 23:58 scan/
    root@host [/var/spool/exim]# "


    seem that the mail doesn't go in to "exim_incoming" at all after i install it.


    Time is not the same


    Is this why MailScanner didn't scan mail for me ?

    Do you have any way out for this problem?

    Thank you,
    George

    Hi Chirpy ,

    I think i know what's wrong with my mailscanner ,

    I think it's about exim.conf and exim_outgoing.conf

    right now seem that mailscanner is working but i can't get the email that it scans.

    So can i see your exim.conf and exim_outgoing.conf?

    can you please send it to my email?

    it's burachat@activemedia.co.th

    best regards,
    George
