I have just released a tiny update for MailScanner 4.84.5-3 which fixes 
the problem where clamd would quarantine because it 
should it had a virus in it.

It does indeed have a copy of EICAR in it (a 100% safe test string used 
for testing virus scanners), and I have now encoded it rather better so 
that clamd won't find it.
