If you only use the H+BEDV scanner (AntiVir), you can also use their 
'avmilter' package. It is available for download on their homepage 


Private, non commercial use is free with a key they send once registered 
(you'll need a key anyway, even if you use 'amavisd' with AntiVir after the 
evaluation period). I must admit I have no experience with 'amavisd', but 
'avmilter' speeded up scanning significantly compared to 'amavis-perl'.
