"In continuation of my document http://www.howtoforge.com/qmail-openldap-on-ubuntu about setting up qmail-ldap on Ubuntu this document will help you to set up Qmail-Scanner with ClamAV antivirus and SpamAssassin spamfilter.

"Introduction

"Qmail-Scanner is an add-on that enables a Qmail email server to scan email for certain characteristics. It is typically used for its anti-virus and anti-spam protection functions, in which case it is used in conjunction with external scanners. It also enables a site (at a server/site level) to create "Policy blocks": i.e. react to email that contains specific strings in particular headers, or particular attachment filenames or types (e.g. *.EXE attachments).

"Its archival features helps ISPs and corporations around the world with new or pending legislation, and regulatory requirements. It can archive all processed email into an archive maildir. This is ideal for backup purposes for audit policy reasons."
