looks like I have more problems then... I was wrong in the first place,
the .com-files were not scanned too, they were only rejected because of
filetype rules.
I changed them, allowing .com and .exe, but still rav does not scan them.
If I turn debugging on, I get
Feb 15 09:00:25 mail MailScanner[4678]: Commencing scanning by rav...
Feb 15 09:00:26 mail MailScanner[4678]: Completed scanning by rav

but it looks like /usr/lib/MailScanner never gets executed at all.
That's really strange, f-prot and/or clamav are still working great, but
no success with rav on my side so far and this is the AV package I have
opted for.
