This debate was aired a while back. We use two here working with amavis and
spamassassin. Both use a cron job to get the latest updates every morning. I
have had incidents of new virus's only get caught by one of the scanners but
I think the score is "one all" at the moment so nothing to chose between
1. clamav - only provides virus signatures, but thats what you want and the
updates, although all donated by the community, appear to be very prompt.
2. Bitdefender - commercial virus scanner, works very well.

Got spamassassin working with razor but would like to have a virus scanner
working in conjunction! Instead of popping of the individual mail accounts I
have, I now pop directly off my Linux box which has retrieved all my mail
from the various accounts. Its catching around 80% of spam but would like to
stop virus as well. Any suggestions for a good virus scanner and works with
spamassassin - I know there are a lot of virus scanners out there but any
suggestions from this news group would be appreciated.
