    The edge & current builds have the clamav connector in the cpanel addon modules (in the cpanel section in whm). You must be running the latest exim builds (4.41-100) for this to be enabled. (/scripts/exim4 --latest) will install it. This is not yet supported under freebsd; However support is forthcoming within a week.

    Can you confirm that you will leave the MailScanner modifications in place (for exim_outgoing.conf etc) in the future for those of us who prefer (immensely) to exiscan?

    The modifications will stay, however if mailscanner changes their system I can't say for sure if we will add support for new versions.

    I sincerely hope you do continue to support it as the exiscan solution is fine on a small scale for people hosting their own sites. For those offering web hosting (which presumably the majority are) then MailScanner is the only solution that provides the flexibility and configurability you need to offer a scanning service.

    A little more time looking at how to configure MailScanner for the cPanel environment can make MailScanner a very effective and better resource user than the version originally offered on layer1.

    I'm relatively new to cPanel (only been using it for a little over a year now). I am unfamiliar with what MailScanner is, and what its advantages are.

    Can I have it installed with the exiscan patch thats currently in place? I'd like to be able for customers to see if they have a virus (ie if they send an outgoing e-mail with a virus it would send them back a message). I'd also like for it to deliver the empty message from exiscan. Exiscan just rejects the message altogether, but I'd like the text portion or "non virus" portion delivered onto the user's mailbox. Is this possible with mailscanner?

    Thanks,
    Jesse

    Yes, it is definitely possible with MailScanner, but you cannot have exiscan/clamavconnector installed as well as MailScanner, it's one or the other.

    So what exactly is "exiscan" and "clamav" since they are seperate, but seem to do the "same" job?

    ClamAV is an open source virus scanner. The exiscan-acl patch adds content scanning to the exim4 ACL system.

    Clamavconnector is cPanel's ACL for using ClamAV with Exim through the exiscan ACL patch.

    I just installed clamav connector , however where would i go to configure it?

    I read a past post, not sure where to find it though. But a user said when he ran the scan it erased all files in the inbox, and someone suggested changing a configuration setting to prevent that.

    However i'm not sure where to configure this.

    Does the ClamAVConnector give you account level settings with exiscan? Or is it just a wrapper to set up the exiscan/clam combo?

    Right now I'm running exiscan/clam on a VPS and it's rather resource intensive - is Mailscanner less so?

    Thanks for any info!
