I'm running our mail server (Postfix) on a Mac OS X 10.4.11 box, and would like to integrate it with Avast virus scanning.

I thought I'd use amavisd-new for this.

The code it uses to do this is:

['avast! Antivirus daemon',
 \&ask_daemon,   # greets with 220, terminate with QUIT
["SCAN {}\015\012QUIT\015\012", '/var/run/avast4/mailscanner.sock'],
qr/\t\[\+\]/, qr/\t\[L\]\t/, qr/\t\[L\]\t([^[ \t\015\012]+)/ ],

But after installing Avast for Mac, it does not put a daemon in /var/run.

Does anyone know how to get it to work? Is there a mailscanner.sock created in the mac version?

Thanks,

James.

Hmm this is really something Zilog will have to answer.
