To let you have a look, you can download

It's quite big, as it happens to include all the perl modules shipped in
the main MailScanner tar distro. I could have carefully removed them all,
but the general idea is to ship one tar distro containing the combination
of MailScanner and ClamAV/SpamAssassin.

It will install ClamAV, the Perl ClamAV module and SpamAssassin-3.0.0pre4.


1) You will need GNU make to be installed in /usr/local/bin (get it from before attempting to run the
script. The script will fail with Sun's make, as ClamAV requires GNU make.

2) It assumes you already have MailScanner and its dependencies installed.
