I have just implemented support for multi-line "Inline Text Warning" and
"Inline HTML Warning" messages.

Just implemented that, too.

Changes for the next version include:
         Support for Command (CSAV) virus scanner
         Support for Inoculate-IT virus scanner
         Changes to debug logging to quieten down syslog
         Support for using Sophos's built-in (but undocumented) TNEF
decoding to improve reliability of scanning TNEF attachments from MS
         Multi-line inline message warnings
         Configurable "VirusWarning.txt" filename

Other changes planned include:
         Support for other virus scanners (if I can find them)
         Support for SpamAssassin spam detection
         Support for list of local domain names from which we will never
send cleaned up messages, just warn the sender instead. This saves face if
you are scanning outgoing mail and have an internal outbreak of a mail
that got in via some non-MailScanner route.
