Two open source email virus scanners for Linux

Couldn’t agree more…integrating clamAV and mailscanner is an excellent way to eliminate viruses and spam before they reach your mail server. Mailscanner’s command line interface can be a little daunting, however its’ flexibility and reliability far outweigh the lack of GUI configuration. About a year ago we added multiple virus scanners to mailscanner. Ever since the modification we had no viruses and very little spam. If you must have a GUI (sigh) there is a commercial product that integrates mailscanner and ClamAV called DefenderMX.
