I am very interested in moving to clamavmodule at the moment as I need 
something to relive the load on MailScanner boxes right now. My in queue 
is up over 600 at the moment as I have issues with URIDNSBL no 
completing lookups, so SA is very slow right now. (I've posted already 
on the SA list).

Once switching to clamavmodule will there be a tell tale log message to 
let me know it is working? I have a bit too much processing going on to 
be flipping MailScanner on and off at the moment to send Eicars.



Three years now I've asked Google why they don't have a

Maybe they forgot who made that choice possible.
