Symantec antivirus & ClamWin together

Post by irblue » 2005-07-19 05:15

hMailServer : 4.0-B125
ClamWin : 0.86.1
Symantec antivirus : 8.00.9374

The machine I'm setting up have a Symantec antivirus, it seems when email with virus received by hmailserver, the email got caught by Symantec antivirus realtime scanning before hMailServer can scan the email with ClamWin, as a result, the recipient did not get notified that a email was not delivered to him.

Anyone have experience how to setup hmailsever & ClamWin to do the first tier scanning (have notification to user) and Norton to provide final protection ?

Thanks in advance.

I think that the only way is to disable real time protection.

I don't use symantec antivirus for a while as it need too much ressource, and I'm sure your computer will appreciate if you do the same thing with it. If your computer is mainly used as a server, you should not need another antivirus than clamwin as the only way virus come should be from mail and so automaticly detected thank's to hMailServer and Clamwin.
