Description of problem:
clamav is a very useful package (for configuring a mail filter, when servicing a LAN of Windows machines), but it can't be used alone.
Since amavisd-new (http://www.ijs.si/software/amavisd/)is not present in Fedora Extras, one cannot use yum to directly download and install a complete antivirus solution.
The user must mix Extras with other yum repositories (such as DAG or DRIES), which are partially incompatible, arriving at a not-so-stable mail solution.
*Fedora-native* documentation about using together Postfix, clamav, amavisd, spamassassin in a SELinux environment are missing or incomplete.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Expected Results: Amavisd-new to be packaged and integrated in Fedora Extras.
A short documentation, manual-like, about integrating MTA, clamav, amavisd-new, SELinux and spamassassin should be written.
FC3 and FC4 have now been EOL'd.
Please check the ticket against a current Fedora release, and either adjust the
release number, or close it if appropriate.
