Hi folks,

I have just released a new beta 4.59.2 which includes the support for 
clamd, using the patches provided earlier on this list.

If you use clamd and are running MailScanner as root (or have not 
specified the Run As User at all), then it is vital that you read the 
notes just above the "Incoming Work Group" setting in order to get the 
ownership and permissions correct so that clamd can read them.

Download as usual from

Please test this release for me!

The Change Log for 4.59 so far is this:

* New Features and Improvements *
2 Changed locations monitored for ClamAV updates to fit new ClamAV 0.9 
2 Added support for clamdscan and clamd. Use "Virus Scanners = clamd".

* Fixes *
1 Exim fix by Debian Maintainer: Simon Walter.
1 Incoming Work Group not honoured for files with a leading dot in their
  filename. Again, fix by Simon Walter.
