Ah. Sounds logically. So I guess the only chance I have, is to upgrade
Mailscanner (I have a debian-box, on which this scenario (without the
daemons, but I read what Julian thinks about virus-scanner daemons)
works perfectly, and mailscanner is in a new version.

Hm... I wonder, if I upgrade this box (it is a SuSE 7.2), rpm behaves as
.deb, and does not overwrite my config-files, or asks to overwrite. I
don't have much experience with rpms.

Thank you, Julian
