Is there a configuration document for the Avast4mail plug-in.  I'm getting errors when starting avast avmail user errors:  plz see the log below:  /var/log/avast4/avastd.log  The user avmail does exist in the /etc/passwd file.  Also there exists an entry in /etc/group file: "avmail:x:491:"  And I am restarting avast using:  "/etc/init.d/avastd restart"

I have a couple of Questions, but first things first.  I'm really looking for a user manual or configuration manual, or a quick-start guide for Linux Server version of Avast, and how to get Avast to scan incoming email.  Also I noticed that system file scans find the "eicar.com" test virus but Avast doesn't seem to configured to quarantine or tag the infected file.  I want to configure Avast to tag and or quarantine infected files.

Thanks
