Hi @ll,hi Andrew,Rainer
sorry that i renamed the subject, but my intention is to make this part
give more notice on the list.
I can confirm the scan problem with clamav vfs and bigger pst file.
As i just have this problem too, i tried google about faqs about this.
I studied the last readme of the vfs and there is just an example
that i should use file -i to find out what mime type my system ( suse
9.2 ) means to a pst file
pdc:/home/danielop/outlook.pst # file -i ./Outlook.pst
so i included this to vscan-clamav.conf
; exclude files from being scanned based on the MIME-type! Semi-colon
; seperated list (default: empty list). Use this with care!
exclude file types = pst
i havent my win test client up, and no big pst around to do some tests
but i am nearly sure this entry is >>not<< right ( or could it be that
easy???), but future tests will show
so i will cc the mantainer of vscan
to give a more detailed example to us how syntax to exclude is done
or perhaps somebody on the list knows more
Anyway my thx goes to Rainer for doing such a nice job on vscan
cause pst file a comlicated filetypes by their nature.
