Agreed. I did repost to the same thread correcting my error :-)

Ok, hands up I missed that too. The config seems the obvious place. You
option will work for the first time until freshclam runs and updates then
it will want to run incremental updates so you will need to be manually
clearing up the database directory every other update.

I still haven't seen any problem listing both the main directory and the
incremental 'de-compressed' directories for MailScanner to monitor in the
MailScanner.conf file but equally I am still awaiting an incremental
update :-)
