I'd just like to point out using an anti-virus daemon like
Sophie/Trophie, F-Prot Daemon or Kapsersky Anti-Virus Daemon (just to name
a few) speeds up amavis/amavisd a lot. Actually, I planned to ship amavisd
on SuLi 8.1, but my time was too limited to fix some issues + add some
features to amavis 0.3.12pre8 and amavisd-snapshot. So, I sheduled a
deamonized version of amavis for the next SuSE Linux release -  whether
it will be amavisd, amavis-ng (not yet deamonized) or amavisd-new, I
simply can't tell yet. Every "branch" has it's pros/cons. Probably I
should start a survey ;)

Thank you very much. I'm sure the AMaViS Team really appreciates it :)
