    I use clamscan as a virus scanner.
    It can analyse compressed files (rar, zip, etc...)
    I want to use clamscan to analyse compressed files, and not amavis to decompress files before scanning.
    (I set $bypass_decode_parts=1 in amavisd.conf)

    But you have to ask clamav on the command line:
    /usr/bin/clamscan -r --unzip --unrar
    (else it doesnt scan compressed files)
    This works on my configuration from the command line.

    Unfortunately, in /etc/amavisd.conf, these option seem to be ignored: every infected compressed file passes through amavis and clamscan.
    (on the opposite, a "normal" infected file, not compressed, it detected)

    In amavisd.conf, I have:
    $clamscan = "/usr/bin/clamscan -r --unzip --unrar"

    Any idea?
