If you are using clamavmodule have a look on my website
http://www.gbnetwork.co.uk/mailscanner/ for a patch to disable clamav
detecting encrypted archives as viruses. Then if you use mailwatch you
can use its interface to release messages as long as they dont contain a
virus (mailwatch wont allow you to release a virus).
