That's actually not far from the mark. Only mimedefang instead of
We're thinking about having off-campus IP addresses get scanned by
mimedefang, and reject during SMTP if it contains a virus. Then have
on-campus IP addresses still get scanned by MailScanner (there some
subtle interactions that cause us to not want to do SMTP rejection for
on-campus IP addresses).
Mimedefang uses clamd. When I proposed the opposite question to them
(using the ClamAV perl module) their claim was that they can't think of
how anything could be faster than clamd.
