Re: [Evolution] Evolution: how to check the incoming mails?

I just noticed the link I was pointing to some months ago does no longer
exist, so I thought I'd just update it for future reference:

In order not to spread viruses I'd like to check the incoming mails, 
managed by Evolution.
I have, also, installed ClamAv antivirus along with its frontend ClamTk.
My Evolution version is 2.4.1. Does it have a built in support for 
ClamAv? Or, do I need to install another suitable software (amavisd-new ?)
Unfortunately my knowledge of such things is low, so, I'll be grateful 
to you if you give me a helping hand about the right procedure.

Hi Alberto,

It is very easy. Have a look at :

This should tell you all you need to do in order to set up ClamAV to
scan for viruses on incoming mails. Note: where the example
says /bin/clamscan, you probably have to use /usr/bin/clamscan in
ubuntu. If not sure where your clamscan binary is installed, try:

whereis clamscan

To your questions:

* Evolution has got no builtin support for ClamAV, although ClamAV can
be used with Evolution.
* You do not ned to install any other software apart from ClamAV (not
even the ClamTk frontend, which in my experience is much slower than the
command line)
