These are great suggestions for clamscan. I think mine message was geared towards clamdscan which I use to scan mail messages. I worry about people sending large files and clamdscan doesn't scan them so I scan them manually and adjust clamscan accordingly. Also I need to know what max-filesize to set to for my mail server.
