I did read about rulesets for "Virus Scanning" and in doing so, I read the
following, and I quote "This switch actually switches on/off all processing
of the email messages. If you just want to switch off actual virus
scanning, then set Virus Scanners = none instead". That seems to indicate
that if I do this, then domains that don't have a virus scanner license
will also not have their e-mail scanned for spam. That is not what I am
I don't want to switch off all mail processing. I only want to switch off
virus scanning for domains that haven't purchased a virus scanner license.
The only way I can see to do that is to set "Virus Scanners = none" for
certain domains, either by a ruleset or a custom function. However, I am
told that the Virus Scanner function does not accept a rule set or custom
