I have just released beta 4.47.3. This should be the last beta before 
the stable release of 4.47 next week.

I have improved the init.d scripts to be more helpful to new Postfix 
users, and have improved the ClamAV+SA script to 
automatically add the missing lines to your init.pre file.

The full Change Log is :

* New Features and Improvements *
- - Automatically updates your file with new 
  (and any subsequent deletions) from a master file I keep on All your local changes and additions will be kept of
  course, it will just add any new sites listed in my master list. If 
you want
  to *not* list a site which is in my master list, just put a "REMOVE"
  line in your and that will make it ignore any
  listing for that appears in my master list.
  Updates are done once per day.
- - Quietened ClamAV log output when it scans 0-length files.
- - Improved ClamAV+SA to add the 3 missing plugins to init.pre.
- - Improved init.d scripts for RedHat and SuSE so they setup the queue dir
  ownerships automatically and generally help new users get started without
  them having to follow all the instructions to the letter.

* Fixes *
- - Corrected rare problem where an empty X-MailScanner-SpamCheck header
  could appear in a non-spam email.
- - Problem with empty or null filename.rules.conf or filetype.rules.conf 
- - Problem with Max Attachments setting not be honoured fixed.
- - Problem with "Highlight Phishing Fraud" being ignored fixed.
