I have RedHat 7.1, Sendmail8.9.3, MailScanner 4.04-1 and f-prot 3.12b.

Everything its seems to be working ok, but if I send a message from an external account (hotmail) with a virus attached, I have no warning about an infected message. I tried the EICAR_test file too, but nothing happened, I just get these lines in maillog:

Nov  6 17:34:11 ns0 sendmail[5914]: RAA05914: from=<user at hotmail.com>, size=96715, class=0, pri=126715, nrcpts=1, msgid=<OE17Bt3J3JCj2fBUA510000094e at hotmail.com>, proto=ESMTP, relay=oe17.law7.hotmail.com []

I tested f-prot manually and it says the infection is there (EICAR_test and an infected file (Magistr). I really apreciate your help to solve this issue.

BTW, I got warned about some infected messages, but they are the ones with IFrame tags in it. 

Thanks in advance
