ClamAV 0.100.0 and later releases with atmail 8.6

Steve -

PROBLEM

atmail 8.6 is affected by the new packaging of ClamAV from version 0.100.0 onwards

ENVIRONMENT

  • atmail mail server

CAUSE

The ClamAV package in the EPEL repository has been updated and certain elements of the package have been removed which affect the atmail 8.6 mail server Publish config button and how atmail configures the server.

RESOLUTION

Only ClamAV versions 0.100.0 or newer are impacted with atmail 8.6. 

atmail 8.7 already provides support for these latest ClamAV versions.

You can find your ClamAV version using any of the following commands as root user:

clamscan -V
rpm -qa | grep clamav
yum list installed | grep clamav

It is possible to downgrade the package if your server is already running an affected version of ClamAV by removing the current version and downloading the clamav-0.99.2-1 packages.

Remove current version

By removing the clamav-filesystem package all the other ClamAV packages will be removed as dependencies.

yum remove clamav-filesystem-0.100.0-1.el7.noarch

clamav-update-0.99.2-1.el7.x86_64.rpm

Install clamav-0.99.2-1

Once the files are on the server and you have changed to that directory you can run yum to install all the packages again.

yum install clamav*

Installing : clamav-0.99.2-1.el7.x86_64 10/11
Installing : clamav-update-0.99.2-1.el7.x86_64 11/11

This completes the downgrade process and your atmail 8.6 mail server will be able to run Publish config again
