Question about ClamWin scanning

Post by Julien@TLD » 2005-11-14 19:06

Hello,

I have a little question about ClamWin. I use it with hMailServer 4.1 and it's run very well. I would like to know if ClamWin just scan emails which arrives from an other SMTP server (ingoing messages) or if it also scan emails which are sended by local users (outgoing messages). I think it scans both but I wish a confirmation.

I want also to know if it is possible to temporarly stop ClamWin scanning with a script. What is the xxxxx replacement ?

oApp.Settings.xxxxx = False

For the first question the answer is Yes, the defined antivirus (I have SOSDG clamav port) scans all messages that pass through the SMTP server, both received from the internet or local users.

For the second .... maybe anyone else knows if that's possible ?

hMailAdmin uses the COM API, so everything you can do in hMailAdmin, you can do using scripting / COM API.

oApp.Settings.AntiVirus.ClamWinEnabled = false

Ok, thanks you very much for your replies. An other question but I think it is not possible.
How can I stop (with a script) virus scanning just on outgoing messages while it continues to scan ingoing messages. I know, I have strange questions :)

not easily.. You would have to write your own scripts that performs the scanning.
