I have it working, and scanning all my incoming e-mail. I use Procmail
to filter & sort all my incoming mail on a couple accounts, and wrote a
script that is set as a non-delivering filter rule at the top of each
procmailrc, that runs a message through F-Prot. If the message is
clean, it just passes it through; if it's infected, it drops it in an
infected mailbox, and replaces it with a message giving the virus scan
details in the stream of mail flowing to its normal destination. If you
want to see the script, just drop me a line and I can send it to you.
I would also be interested, however, if there's a pre-written program
that accomplishes this (in the same manner).
