Hi there.

Julian Field sent me the following patch (at the end of the message) to the
panda-wrapper file.
It works... and panda 7 seems to be a much better product then the previous

As far as the autoupdate file you talk about i don't know it and i'll look
into it, but i just ended a few minutes ago a "working" auto-update script.
It's not ended nor optimized. Was cooked just about 10 minutes ago (it uses
wget anda unzip).
If you want it i'll send it to you... and i'll talk with Julian Field to
see if he wants to put it in the Mailscanner distibution.

Here is the patch for /usr/lib/MailScanner/panda-wrapper

Was this solved in any way?
I just recently got a panda evaluation license and downloaded pavcl 7.0.1
which doesnt seem to work with the latest MailScanner.

Also, there is a panda signature update script available at , could this be made into a panda-
autoupdate MailScanner script perhaps?

regards, Tony
