Very few people have ever had much luck getting Panda to work properly.
It is the worst of all the virus scanners I support. Check you
/etc/MailScanner/virus.scanners.conf file to be sure you have the right
/usr/lib/MailScanner/panda-wrapper /usr /tmp
will scan /tmp for you, the "/usr" argument is the path taken from the
end of the corresponding line in virus.scanners.conf.
