ClamWin is an open source virus scanner which runs on Windows.
Configuring hMailServer to use ClamWin
- Install ClamWin from http://www.clamwin.com/
- Start hMailAdmin
- Select Settings -> Protocols -> SMTP -> Anti Virus
- Click on the ClamWin tab
- Select Use ClamWin
- Click Auto-detect
- If the autodetection of the paths fails, you will have to enter the paths manually.
- To test the virus scanning capability, download a test virus from eicar. Practically all virus scanners treat the test virus,
eicar.com, as if it was a real virus. The file contains a string that makes the scanners think they've detected a real virus. To test the antivirus functionality in hMailServer, attach the
eicar.com file to an email and send it through hMailServer.
