When the zimbraAttachmentsScanEnabled attribute is set to FALSE, are attachments ignored by the virus scanner?

This value ignore attachments added by local users:

Scanning Attachments in Outgoing Mail

You can enable real-time scanning of attachments in outgoing emails sent using the Zimbra Web Client. If enabled, when an attachment is added to an email, it is scanned using ClamAV prior to sending the message. If ClamAV detects a virus, it will block attaching the file to the message. By default, scanning is configured for a single node installation.

To enable using a single node:

zmprov mcf zimbraAttachmentsScanURL clam://localhost:3310/
zmprov mcf zimbraAttachmentsScanEnabled TRUE

When in doubt about what an attribute does, you could look for it with: 'zmprov desc -a zimbraAttachmentsScanEnabled'

When applied to an MTA, it enables that MTA to scan outgoing attachments (as described in the wiki article here https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Enable_the ... Web_Client).
