   I have been asked, several times, if I could integrate some
virus scanner wrapper, like Amavis, into ZMailer. The more I think
of that, the more it appears to be stuff for 3.x series of ZMailer;
not for current 2.x ... but the technology slated for 3.x implements
something like 2/3 of Amavis for other internal system purposes ...

Nevertheless, that is just the interface from email system to separate
file scanner. Those scanners are available in abundance for winblows,
but are very rare for anything else. Amavis pages seem to point to
a bunch of products with Linux support, so perhaps there are something
usefull to be plugged in ?
