Is there a virus scanner for Unix's MMDF that will detect virus from incoming mail and destroy the mail ? I know unix is virus safe but many users get their emails on the outlook express from my unix box using the pop3+smtp protocols. I want all mail with an attachment that has .scr .pif .exe .zip be deleted or destroyed when sending or receiving emails.

Thanks so much

I use the default SMTP server that comes with MMDF 2.43.3b on SCO unix 5.0.5. and I need anything that is a better option to kill the viruses or spam mails we are getting.

Thanks

Use Amavis (http://www.amavis.org) any virus scanner (you can find a list on the Amavis site) and this instruction: http://www.aplawrence.com/KevinSmith/pcoverlays/scanmindex.html
