4.10-1, exim, and virus reports

Sun Dec 8 01:10:02 GMT 2002

First, just wanted to say I converted all my MailScanner 3.x installs to
4.10-1 today and everything went very smoothly.  I also upgraded my exim
4.04 to 4.10 and SpamAssassin to 2.43 with no problems (all of this on
FreeBSD 4.6.2).

Second, a couple of small feature requests.  In the message sent to the
sender letting them know that they sent a virus, the following variable exists:


which is populated with the output of each virus scanner.  Would it be
possible to remove any prefix/suffix spaces and ! marks?  Specifically:

HHDAODHH.txt        Found the W32/Hybris.gen at MM virus !!!
HHDAODHH.txt  Infection: W32/Hybris.worm.B

The first one is from mcafee, which puts 7 extra spaces before the report
and the annoying "!" marks afterwards.  It would be nice to be able to
strip those out.

Also, it would be nice to have a global "directory path" variable in the
config someplace so it can be controlled in once place rather than having
to edit the path in several places if you dont use the default
"/opt/MailScanner" path..
