For a virus scanner to work with MailScanner, all that is necessary is a
command-line utility that will scan files given to it. It doesn't need to
(or want to) know anything about the mail transport in use. Or is the mail
version the only one that provides a Linux-based command line scanning
utility? It appears that most of the other versions are Windows-based.

paranoid this morning :-)
Not helped by my next door neighbour's burglar alarm going off at 7  :-(
