    Yes it can but depends on how it is configured.

    One of the best all around solutions available especially since Chirpy has taken the time to tweak it for cPanel.

    You might want to check that all default addresses are, where possible, set to :fail: as this may help. Possibly.

    I also find that using Exim ACLs to reject mail from hosts that forge HELO/EHLO dramatically cuts down on the amount of viruses that get as far as MailScanner. However, this is assuming that no valid host would forge HELO/EHLO and that such hosts are spreading unwanted messages, which is an assumption that I am willing to make. For me, this has reduced the amount of virus-infected mail getting as far as MailScanner by about 95% and also has an affect on the level of spam getting as far as MailScanner, but to what extent I couldn't really say.
