I have nothing in the message log; however, I don't have clamd configured to use that log either. I am considering changing the config file and restarting the daemon and see what happens. It is my opinion, although I may be incorrect, that clamd only checks for the presents of updated clamd files and not third party definition files. I cannot seem to verify that however. -- Gerard _______________________________________________ Help us build a comprehensive ClamAV guide: visit http://wiki.clamav.net http://lurker.clamav.net/list/clamav-users.html
