AMaViS

AMaViS

AMaViS (A Mail Virus Scanner) scans e-mail attachments for viruses using third-party virus scanners available for UNIX environments. 

In other words, AMaViS is a script that interfaces a mail transport agent (MTA) with one or more virus scanners.

It resides on a Linux machine and looks through the attached files arriving via e-mail, generates reports when a virus is found and sets the delivery on hold.

The currently supported MTAs are courier, exim, qmail, postfix, and sendmail.
