  Adventures in Linux Sitting

p3scan.  Great idea! We’ll use it to stop all viruses from coming into the corporate intranet!  It’ll work.  Now do it..  Wait, you need a static SMTP smart host but your pop3 needs to be transparent.  HAH!

Okay, it’s not that bad.  In actuality I just ended up creating a p3scan-smtp.conf file and a second init.d script that load p3scan with that configuration file.  Run it on a differant port, redirect smtp requests there instead of the transparent p3scan and WALA!  A working email scanner with transparent pop3 (and eventually if they ever release the next version, imap) support and a smarthosted, but transparent to the user, smtp host.  Work’s great when your company uses an ass of an ISP like CableOne, or any other ISP that blocks port 25…

Now if only I can figure out why clamcour/clamav does not seem to be catching the latest Email-Worm.Win32.Bagle.gt… Maybe I need the daily.cvd, I don’t know raspberry
