Chapter 1. Introduction

1.1. What This Document Is:

This document started out as a way for me to document the procedure and required readings for re-creating the deployment of Qmail-Scanner and ClamAV for my employer's email system. I am not a writer, or a programmer. I am a lowly little systems administrator that got frustrated looking online for all of the information to make Qmail-Scanner work with ClamAV. This HOWTO will document the steps that I took to get Qmail-Scanner and ClamAV to work together. Is this the right way to do it? Who knows, it worked for me. There are plenty of snippets of information that I "liberated" from many sources. Please see the Acknowledgments. The most current version of this document can be found at
