-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
| I run clamd on a CentOS server, with freshclam, and clamsmtpd to scan
| And I use it interfacing with postfix.
| However, just clamd alone uses 23 Megabytes when idle!
| Can someone post configuration options to limit or lower memory
| footstamp of clamav all around?
| I'm looking for concrete functional ways to noticeably lower its
| usage, so not things like
| 'this might lower memory usage'.
| Virus scanning is not even that important on this server, my users
| would never be sending viruses,
| it's more an extra way to block spam and stop having to delete viruses
| from email.
| Thanks in advance,

You are probably better off using spamassassin or mime-defang than clamav for spam stopping.
