It has been covered before but no fool-proof answers have been given (and
is not likely to happen). I've been contacting almost all of the supported
anti-virus companies and asked them if i could use their command line
version to scan mail. I didn't mention mailscanner. The overall answer
was no you can't, you need the virusscanner for mailservers,.....
My statement is:
Mailscanner is handling the task of fetching the mails, strip off the
attachment and scan it with an external virusscanner.
An anti-virus package for mailservers is made to do this too. Fetch the
mails, strip off the attachment and scan it.
Since Mailscanner is overlapping the functions of the anti-virusscanner for
mailservers the only thing that needs to be done at the end is to scan a
Something command-line filescanners are licensed to do!
What is your opinion about this? Is there someone who has more
knowledge/experience about this? Any legal advice ?
Thanks in advance
