4. Configuring your Virus Scanner(s)

Definition code is available for a range of virus scanners. Locate your virus scanner product from the list below, and cut and paste the code for your scanner into your /etc/maia/maiad.conf file, in the @av_scanners or @av_scanners_backup arrays. Note that you can have multiple virus scanners in your primary and secondary scanner arrays; maiad will call all of the primary scanners first, and only if all of those fail will it call the secondary scanners.

Generally speaking, daemonized scanners are more efficient than command-line scanners, since the code does not need to be loaded and unloaded from memory every time maiad wants to scan an e-mail. For that reason, it's advisable to use daemonized scanners for your primary scanner array (@av_scanners), and command-line scanners for your backup scanner array (@av_scanners_backup).
