    Solution !

    qmail-scanner with ClamAV from ART is the solution !

    I have to agree. I was skeptical at first but I'm currently using ARTs qmail-scanner. You can install it with yum, it's really easy and efficient. I opted to use a more elaborate antivirus software (Sophos Sweep). Kind of have to support the company seeing as how I am a Sophos Partner. The sweep scanner with ARTs rpm works perfect, even through upgrades of Plesk.

    Re: Solution !

    There is no other solution for drweb problems? Strange little piece of software it seems.

    drweb should work without keyfile - is that right? If not, then "Key file not found!" is the reason for problems...

    I do have

    Mon Feb 7 17:26:27 2005 Key file not found!
    Mon Feb 7 17:26:27 2005 Daemon is enabled for protecting x e-mail`s:

    drweb is protecting these e-mails by deleteing virus-mails without notice, which is bad!

    What do you mean by - "Don't work"? As far as I can tell from your posting it works fine?

    If you're refering to the fact that your virusbase is old ... you should remember to run the drweb/update/update.pl script.

    I'd actually like to know how to keep it dead.
    verytime I shut down Dr web from the Service Management page, it will come back to life on its own a few hours later or the next day.

    knowing my luck, I'll uninstall and find out it was connected to spamassassin somehow and then the server will crash :)
    Is it ok to uninstall drweb? Or is there a .conf file for it somewhere telling it to not do anything?

    I too would like to know if there is a way to put Dr.Web to sleep and not have it touch any mail or other files (like those in the bin directory of qmail).

    I am afraid to uninstall it because I don't want it to break anything. For example, what happens to the files owned by drweb (like files in /var/qmail/bin) if it is uninstalled?

    i think you can do it in the conf files

    what happens if you stop the dr web service does mail still get delievered ?

    I haven't tried disabling the service... again, mostly because there are people that need this server working and I don't want to break anything.

    this person seemed to have issues when stopping the service, and so did this person. I think I also remembered reading that someones server kept restarting it after they stopped it (could have been via command line, however)
