 With all due respect, I really think that you should take a look at the
online manual that Steve Swaney put together at:

 You should also consider buying Julian's book, which documents practically
everything in MailScanner, from:,mailscanner.13170076

 If you were to read these (and read them carefully), as well as the actual
comments in the configuration files, you would save yourself alot of time
and trouble instead of having to ask the list a new question every hour or

 For example, in the MailScanner.conf file for the option "Still Deliver
Silent Viruses":

        # Still deliver (after cleaning) messages that contained viruses
        # in the above option ("Silent Viruses") to the recipient?
        # Setting this to "yes" is good when you are testing everything, and
        # because it shows management that MailScanner is protecting them,
        # but it is bad because they have to filter/delete all the incoming
        # warnings.
        # Note: Once you have deployed this into "production" use, you
should set
        # Note: this option to "no" so you don't bombard thousands of people
        # Note: useless messages they don't want!
