not logging ">>> Virus", only "Found 1 viruses"

Hi everyone,

I'm going crazy trying to figure out why I'm not getting log reports for
detected viruses.... To be more specific, I'm am getting these:

Jun  3 16:38:18 glacier mailscanner[17266]: Found 1 viruses in messages

but not these types:

May 28 21:42:53 mailscanner[27921]: >>> Virus
'W32/Klez-H' found in file ./17Cnnb-0001PL-00/install.exe

I've looked every where for the keywords "found in" and ">>>" but to no
relevant success. Looked at the src, in the howto/faq, in my mail archives
since Jan 2002, and in the online mailing list archives.

I'm using Mcafee:

Virus Scan for Linux v4.16.0
Copyright (c) 1992-2001 Networks Associates Technology Inc. All rights reserved.
(408) 988-3832  LICENSED COPY - Nov 13 2001

Scan engine v4.1.60 for Linux.
Virus data file v4205 created May 29 2002
Scanning for 60684 viruses, trojans and variants.

Is that type of specific virus report to syslog a result of the virus scanner
(some thing other than mcafee?).

I've included my syslog info below just in case.

Any help would be much appreciated.



syslog.conf file on mailserver contains:

## Everything to loghost
*.* @loghost


syslog.conf file on loghost server contains the following line for mail:
