Below is a message I am getting when doing a lint test on a new
MailScanner install on a CentOS box with the latest MailScanner build
and the ClamAV download from the website. I'm confused
as I have Free AVG and Clam installed however it gives conflicting info
in the output below. First it says there are no virus scanners installed
and this is bad, then it says there was a virus found. So is it using
calm and AVG or no? Thanks
