I use version 5 of Kaspersky.  I specified "kaspersky-4.5" according to the instructions in the MailScanner configuration file.

I also added a soft link in directory /opt called "kav" and pointing to "/opt/kaspersky/kav4lms".

We'll be changing to version 6 of Kaspersky in the next few months. I believe our licence keys work with both version 5 and with version 6.

All the best,
