I have just released a new beta, 4.68.3.
This contains quite a lot of major new things, some of which are very 
much "behind the scenes" so I would appreciate it if people could test 
this out for me.

The major new changes are mostly these:
- - Support for F-Prot version 6 scanning daemon, fpscand. This is very fast.
- - Support for Vexira and Esets scanners updated.
- - Major new delivery system for Web Bug Replacement image and 
phishing.bad.sites.conf file. This now uses an "anycast" content 
delivery network graciously provided by Matt Hampton, so big thanks to 
him. This should make Distributed Denial of Service attacks (which I 
suffered a couple of weeks ago) virtually impossible as the files are 
provided by a globally-distributed network of hosts all behind the same 
URL and IP address.
- - New ability to forward messages to a list of email addresses if the 
messages contain filenames or filetypes matching the rules give in 
filename.rules.conf and filetype.rules.conf files.

Download as usual from

Please let me know how you get on with this release.
Thanks folks!
