No problem :-)
Personally and professionally I've used ClamAV (via clamd) for a long
time. I actually used to be a "team member" pre-Cisco, pre-SourceFire.
I've used Avira AntiVir, but this happened:
I've used F-PROT for Linux Workstations:
(but do not right now)
I have not done much recent Linux anti-virus related work for client
servers, but many of the ones that I used to use or at least test years
ago have gone the way of the Dodo: Sophie, Trophie (+ TrendMicro),
File::Scan, OpenAntiVirus, ...
Not sure if McAfee/NAI/Intel uvscan is still around or not, but from what
I remember that was very resource intensive to run the binary over and
over every time, using a tmpfs or other RAM-based filesystem or not.
I'm not involved with any environment right now where I have to worry
about a large number of users and their mail, beyond making sure it gets
delivered. I have a client ISP that actually does no anti-virus scanning
incoming or outgoing, only recommends anti-virus software for them to
install on their PC. They do have a conservative MIMEDefang filter and
