Thank you for using AntiVir.

As you can see, antivir correctly detects the virus "virus.exe".

If I attach this very file to a message and send it over Postfix+MS,
it passes through.

MailScanner.conf contains this:

Virus Scanners = antivir

If I put clamav there everything works fine. But why does AntiVir not
work? Because of the "DEMO" mode?
