Genco Yilmaz's comprehensive tutorial on setting up your SMTP gateway with Postfix, amavisd-new, ClamAV and so on includes detailed list of required Perl modules for amavisd-new and good ClamAV configuration tips: genco.gen.tc/postfix_virtual.php#virusprotection.

Scott Vintinner's Anti-Spam Gateway Tutorial—OpenBSD-centric, it also doesn't cover ClamAV, but it does include instructions on running amavisd-new in a chroot jail, which especially is important if you intend to have amavisd accept TCP connections from other hosts: www.flakshack.com/anti-spam.

System requirements

Anonymous's picture

Was wondering what kind of system requirements would be acceptable for processing and checking email for a business of less then 50 users?

I also was wondering if you can incorporate with Maia Mailguard? That looks like a very nice frontend. But I do not want to have users mess with email.

Just wondering.
