Quick AV question

Amavis, as per standard set up, does scanning for inbound and not outbound
too. Further, it lacks the flexibility offered by the rulesets feature of MS
and spamassassin integration.

Amavis is actually, at least to my understand, an e-mail scanner, that calls
an anti-virus piece of software, such as Kapersky, or F-prot, or Sophos.  It
can also be used to scan e-mails for spam.

Sounds just like MailScanner!  In Fact, it fulfills the same role as
MailScanner in the marketplace, only it is much tougher to install and setup
and have working.  MailScanner is more stable and robust.  Once I switched
from Amavis to MailScanner, I've had very few problems.
