I'll repost my previous directions..

Same thing applies to .lzh files, you just need to install lha and add the
appropriate parameter to the config file.

You can also install decompressors for ace, zoo, and arj with the same
basic methods.

Do you have the external unrar utility installed? (note: the latest version
of rar costs, but there is a freeware command-line unrar for *nix)


ClamAV's built-in rar support doesn't support the newer rar3 format, so you
need to install the external unrar utility and then
edit  /usr/lib/MailScanner/clamav-wrapper to enable the --unrar parameter.
