Hello Julian,

I have MailScanner installed on may Linux working with McAfee only.

To avoid auto-update to run every hour, i've disable the script
update_virus_scanners on my cron.hourly and create a call to
mcafee-autoupdate script on may crontab file to run every day at 01:00am.
I've been checked every day and there seems to be no problem on the
mcafee-autoupdate script.
I just want to confirm if you see any problem with that configuration.
