There's a difference with the files provided by openssl with 7.x/8 and 9.... will recompile for 7.X and 8 in a moment :)

i'm sorry what are these files for, mail and mail scan?

is the Standard Version default version in DA?

what exactly can the ExiScan version do?ExiScan support these

MIME ACL that is called for all MIME parts in incoming MIME messages.
Antivirus using 3rd party scanners.
generic command line interface
Sophie / Sophos
Kaspersky's kavdaemon
ClamAV via clamd
MKS AntiVirus
DRWeb AntiVirus
Antispam using SpamAssassin.
Regular expression match against headers, bodies, raw
MIME parts and decoded MIME parts.
do we need to install clamav in order to get it work?

The exiscan versions are simply there for the many that have recently requested it, and want to remain with the DA rpms.

I've not really looked into it, and the only difference is the exim versions are patched... you dont need clam av or anything like that, no.

If you want to make use of the exiscan patch you will need to configure it yourself, information is on the website at:

may i ask what have you done? :)

after install these rpms, do you do other configurations, such as configure SpamAssassin.

thanks, i'm a bit blur here, heh heh. very sorry.
I have tried to get SpamAssassin worked (and MailScanner as well) before I upgrade my exim, but finally I failed. So I rollbacked my system to use the default one. That's Exim only.

I just upgrade the RPM of exim, and anything got done. :D

i think i finally got some clue here, this is a version update, update exim from 4.24 to 4.32. and if i install the Exiscan patched Version, i will NOT have ClamAV and SpamAssassin installed automatically. Exiscan is to enable exim work with ClamAv and SpamAssassin, fuctioning as anti-spam and anti-virus, correct?

thanks jeffery and ProwebUK.

Yes.

if you haven't configure Exim to work with SpamAssassin or MailScanner, it should worth upgrading to the latest version of Exim.

However, if you have followed the how-to to config it using MailScanner, I am not sure upgrading exim will affect it or not.. :)

You've confused me a bit Chris :( .

Are you saying that your exiscan doesn't need ClamAV, or that I won't need to install it because it's already in the patch?

Thanks.

I went through the homepage of Chris provided, it seems that the patch version enables the plugin of ClamAV easily.

It still need Clamd to be installed..,right? :rolleyes:

The exiscan patched RPMs are no different to the standard ones besides they were compiled with the exiscan patch, many wanted this but wanted to remain with the DA RPMs rather than leave rpm and start manually compiling.... so it was basically for them.

Theres usage guides on timj.co.uk (linked from the official website) I believe..... besides that I dont really know how to use it.

If you dont know what the exiscan versions are (and dont want to find out) you would be better sticking with the standard versions.

(note: no additional configurations etc are included with the exiscan versions... it is ONLY the patch itself)

Neorder: This is simply an upgrade of the standard exim... you dont need clamav or anything else no matter what version you use, and the how-to you pointed it is not required...

Will have to wait for John on that one... or any of the FBSD users.... I know nothing about the FBSD package system... the patch should be identical though.. if your compiling from source just use patch < patch

Yeah, I certainly could do that. However, we already have compat-4.0 installed (libdb-4.0.so) installed.

Surely exim isn't dependent on that one specific version of libdb?

4.0 should also have libdb-3.3.so

http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/redhat/taroon/ws/ia64/compat-db-4.0.14-4.i386.html

try:

rpm -q --provides compat-db

with version 4.0 i get:

libdb-3.1.so
libdb-3.2.so
libdb-3.3.so
libdb-4.0.so
libdb.so.3
libdb.so.3(GLIBC_2.0)
libdb.so.3(GLIBC_2.1)
libdb_cxx-3.1.so
libdb_cxx-3.2.so
libdb_cxx-3.3.so
libdb_cxx-4.0.so
libdb_tcl-3.1.so
libdb_tcl-3.2.so
libdb_tcl-3.3.so
libdb_tcl-4.0.so
