Hi Alex.

Yep I have considered the sa plugin as well. I didn’t consider dropping
clamav as a normal av scanner.

What I contemplated when I looked at it was, if it would be possible to have
2 separate clam installas?

So you could have one that would only get 3rd party sigs, which typically
protects against spam/phishing etc. and not viri.

You would then use this custom clam install with the sa clam plugin. And you
would use a normal clam av as an av scanner in MS

If that’s possible you would benefit without loosing any stats. Obviously
such a setup uses a lot more cpu, but some of us can afford that.

Do anybody know if it would be possible to use 1 clam setup with MS and
another in sa?
