Sorry replaying a litle off topic message, but it may help some one
I'm using uvscan scheduled to rum over night in samba files, also, it scans
e-mail attached files that is converted by MHonArc
(http://www.mhonarc.org/)as the messages arrive.
I also know about a software that scan messages on the server before it
arrive in the local computer, it is AMAVIS (http://www.amavis.org/)
