The virus scanning is independent of MailScanner. You can check the virus definition version by using the normal tools provided by your anti-virus vendor. For instance, if you're using clamAV:
root at mxt:/var/log# clamscan -V
ClamAV 0.99/21477/Mon Mar 28 11:45:21 2016
You can also check your logs. To wit:
#grep freshclam /var/log/syslog
Mar 29 08:25:59 mxt freshclam: main.cvd is up to date (version: 57, sigs: 4218790, f-level: 60, builder: amishhammer)
Mar 29 08:25:59 mxt freshclam: daily.cld is up to date (version: 21477, sigs: 83904, f-level: 63, builder: jesler)
Mar 29 08:25:59 mxt freshclam: bytecode.cvd is up to date (version: 275, sigs: 45, f-level: 63, builder: amishhammer)

Thanks, the EICAR file was indeed stopped. But it seems strange that so few viruses are detected.. how does one check which virus definition file/date is in use?
