Maybe I quoted the article out of context. The impression I got from it,
was that it was a low budget solution for a mid sized business and
would only require one license for the system on whish his shell script
was running. I just was trying to point out that this is not the case
with McAfee virus scanner. This would also apply to Amavis.
