    Default Scanning Entire Mail Store for Viruses

    Is there any way to scan the entire message store for viruses?

    I see a bugzilla request for this (Bug 2903 - Mailbox store antivirus scanning support - not implemented. ), but it's quite old.

    Does anyone know of a workaround that is safe to employ?

    This should work:
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    cd /opt/zimbra/clamav/bin
     ./clamdscan /opt/zimbra/store --config-file=/opt/zimbra/conf/clamd.conf

    Default Scanning Entire Mail Store for Viruses

    Is there any negative to running what was suggested in the last posting? What happens if CLAM does find an infected file and removes it? Will the mailbox be corrupted?

    There might be a few issues with "Show Original" fetch since the blob size in the database would no longer equal the actual blob size in the store.

    So what you are indicating is that this type of datastore scanning might cause some problems then?

    Is this type of datastore scanning supported?

    Thanks
