    are you serious?

    This is really a great post and thanks for the tips. I’ve been a long-time user of ClamAV in order to provide my Windows network users with that extra bit of safety–at least for their mail that runs through the servers I manage. This entry will be very helpful for fellow admins who use Ubuntu Server.

    As a Debian user, using the Volatile depository takes care of being up-to-date with the latest version, something which seems to be sadly amiss from Ubuntu–at least, last time I checked.

    I’m wondering, however, if running an anti-virus on the mail server is even worth it. Over the last 11 months, I had a total of three viruses. ClamAV sucks up a lot of CPU cycles and isn’t really doing much these days. And these days, the real threats come from phishing e-mails or malware that is passed through other methods.

    And lastly, if I may be permitted a little bit of anal retentiveness:

    > Please comment for any querry or if u like this post.

    I’m no master of the English language myself (it’s my second language), but writing “u” rather than “you” kills the professionalism of your article and diminishes its value to the reader. I think this would be unfair because you clearly know your lore and have lots of good to offer to the Ubuntu community.

    All my best,

      Thank you for comment and pointing out the typo that I mostly regret. I have updated that part and changed “u” to “you”. By the way English is my second language.
