the "ins" and "outs" of McAfee with MailScanner

Hi everyone,

I'm running the 30-day evaluation copy of McAfee antivirus on my linux
server with MailScanner. Previously, I was only running ClamAV, but for
now, I'm running both.

Although I'm quite familiar with ClamAV, I'm somewhat of a noob when it
comes to McAfee. I have a few questions:
1) How often does MailScanner check the NAI site for new DAT files? I
couldn't seem to find anything on this.
2) Is there a log file anywhere that I can look at to see when the DAT
files are updated?
3) I understand that there are DAT files, extra DAT files, and
super-extra DAT files? Does MailScanner update these too? Or do I have
to do these manually?

Thanks everyone.
