Thanks, I'll give it a try.

Not to clear on why you would want to change the Minimum Code Status setting in MailScanner.conf to unsupported, but that is my lack of MailScanner knowledge speaking out.

www.rpmfind.net [for Mandrake you need clamav and libclamav].  The Mandrake rpms install clam in /usr rather than /usr/local so you need to edit the paths in the two clam scripts in /usr/lib/MailScanner.  If using Clam you also need to change the Minimum Code Status in MailScanner.conf to unsupported.
