I don't like making baby Jesus cry. My AV scanner rejects the virused mail
on incoming SMTP instead of bouncing it.
Too bad Rav got bought out my MS. I have been hearing very good things
about CLAMAV but I am leery of configuring my mail system around something
that requires fast updates and damn near perpetual monitoring (i.e.
up-to-date virus signatures) but has no revenue stream to keep those doing
And yes, I do realize how ironic that is, considering all my servers run
free/open-source software. Am I wrong in feeling that virus scanning
doesn't quite fit in to that philosophy?
