Using CVS is a lottery at best. Why not use 0.67-1, only a couple of
days old?

Do you know that CVS comes without signature databases? Did you run
freshclam to get them?

After install, try clamscan in the current directory, at least if you
compile from source you get test signatures. Otherwise you can dowmload
from Just run clamscan in the same directory as, it should find it. If that work send it from Yahoo Mail or
similar to your MS server and check your logs.
