Is ClamAVModule actually catching anything on that box?  Was it before
the update?

Subject: Installed MS 4.50 stable successfully

Dear all,


I got to install the latest stable version MS 4.50 successfully on my
RHEL 4 box. It is working fine and a lot faster than the earlier stable
version. Kudos.


            When I run the new feature i.e. /usr/sbin/MailScanner -lint

            I don't get the virus scanners results correct. I had
installed the clamAV+SA easy installation package from the site. But the
result only shows bitdefender as given below.

Checking SpamAssassin errors (if you use it), this may take some time...

SpamAssassin reported no errors.


MailScanner.conf says "Virus Scanners = clamavmodule bitdefender"

Found these virus scanners installed: bitdefender



Sendmail is the default that comes with EL 4.

I had got a lot of conflict errors while installing MS for some perl
