BitDefender *does* disinfect things and a lot more, but it *does not*
disinfect & repack mbox files. Do you say that Windows version of
BitDefender does it? The set of scanning engines is THE SAME for
Windows, FreeBSD, Linux, so it is absolutely impossible to
succesfully take disinfect actions on a mbox on a platform but to fail
on another.

No need to, they're different perspectives. Different versions of the
same security suite for different platforms but serving the same
purpose: better security.
