k, I just tested with "The EICAR Standard AntiVirus Test File" and now
it shows everything correctly! Thanks. I do find it a bit strange that
soft links cannot be handled properly! I create symbolic links with the
generic name of *all* installed packages (/opt/mozilla points to
/opt/mozilla-1.1a, etc.). I soft linked /opt/MailScanner to
/opt/MailScanner-3.21-1 (in fact I still do). But I changed *all*
instances of "/opt/Mailscanner/" with "/opt/MailScanner-3.21-1/" and
that did idd the trick.
