While I certainly would not recommend mailscanner with Postfix (it is
not supported), amavised works fine, however. You could just use the
'clamav-milter' if you so desired. That also delivers excellent
results, especially when used in conjunction with the options third
party signatures. See:
<http://www.sanesecurity.com/download_scripts_linux.htm> if you are not
familiar with it. In any case, once you accept the message, you cannot
bounce it. Let your MTA handle the chore for you.
