NAME

       clamav-milter.conf - Configuration file for clamav-milter

DESCRIPTION

       clamav-milter.conf contains the configuration options for clamav-milter(8).

FILE FORMAT

       The  file  consists  of comments and options with arguments. Each line which starts with a
       hash (#) symbol is ignored by the parser. Options and arguments are case sensitive and  of
       the form Option Argument. The arguments are of the following types:

       BOOL   Boolean value (yes/no or true/false or 1/0).

       STRING String without blank characters.

       SIZE   Size  in  bytes.  You can use 'M' or 'm' modifiers for megabytes and 'K' or 'k' for
              kilobytes.

       NUMBER Unsigned integer.

MAIN OPTIONS

       Example
              If this option is set clamav-milter will not run.

       MilterSocket STRING
              Define the interface through which we communicate with  sendmail.  This  option  is
              mandatory!
              Possible formats are:
              [[unix|local]:]/path/to/file - to specify a unix domain socket
              inet:port@[hostname|ip-address] - to specify an ipv4 socket
              inet6:port@[hostname|ip-address] - to specify an ipv6 socket
              Default: unset

       MilterSocketGroup STRING
              Define the group ownership for the (unix) milter socket.
              Default: disabled (the primary group of the user running clamd)

       MilterSocketMode STRING
              Sets the permissions on the (unix) milter socket to the specified mode.
              Default: disabled (obey umask)

       FixStaleSocket BOOL
              Remove stale socket after unclean shutdown.
              Default: yes

       User STRING
              Run as another user (clamav-milter must be started by root for this option to work)
              Default: unset (don´t drop privileges)

       AllowSupplementaryGroups BOOL
              Initialize supplementary group access (clamav-milter must be started by root).
              Default: no

       ReadTimeout NUMBER
              Waiting for data from clamd will timeout after this time (seconds).
              Default: 120

       Foreground BOOL
              Don´t fork into background.
              Default: no

       Chroot STRING
              Chroot  to  the  specified directory. Chrooting is performed just after reading the
              config file and before dropping privileges.
              Default: unset (don´t chroot)

       PidFile STRING
              Save the process identifier of a clamav-milter (main thread) to a specified file.
              Default: disabled

       TemporaryDirectory STRING
              Optional path to the global temporary directory.
              Default: system specific (usually /tmp or /var/tmp).

CLAMD OPTIONS

       ClamdSocket STRING
              Define the clamd socket to connect to  for  scanning.  This  option  is  mandatory!
              Syntax:
              ClamdSocket unix:path
              ClamdSocket tcp:host:port
              The first syntax specifies a local unix socket (needs an absolute path) e.g.:
              ClamdSocket unix:/var/run/clamd/clamd.socket
              The  second  syntax  specifies  a tcp local or remote tcp socket: the host can be a
              hostname or an ip address; the ":port" field is only required for  IPv6  addresses,
              otherwise it defaults to 3310 e.g.:
              ClamdSocket tcp:192.168.0.1
              This  option  can be repeated several times with different sockets or even with the
              same socket: clamd servers will be selected in a round-robin fashion.
              Default: no default

EXCLUSIONS

       LocalNet STRING
              Messages originating from these hosts/networks will not  be  scanned.  This  option
              takes a host(name)/mask pair in CIRD notation and can be repeated several times. If
              "/mask" is omitted, a host is assumed. To specify a  locally  orignated,  non-smtp,
              email use the keyword "local"
              Default: unset (scan everything regardless of the origin)

       Whitelist STRING
              This  option  specifies  a  file  which  contains  a  list  of  basic POSIX regular
              expressions. Addresses (sent to or from - see below) matching these  regexes   will
              not  be  scanned.   Optionally each line can start with the string "From:" or "To:"
              (note: no whitespace after the colon)  indicating  if  it  is,   respectively,  the
              sender  or  recipient  that is to be whitelisted. If the field is missing, "To:" is
              assumed.  Lines starting with #, : or ! are ignored.
              Default: unset (no exclusion applied)

       SkipAuthenticated STRING
              Messages from  authenticated  SMTP  users  matching  this  extended  POSIX  regular
              expression  (egrep-like) will not be scanned.  As an alternative, a file containing
              a plain (not regex) list of names (one per line) can be specified using the  prefix
              "file:".   e.g. SkipAuthenticated file:/etc/good_guys. Note: this is the AUTH login
              name!
              Default: unset (no whitelisting based on SMTP auth)

       MaxFileSize SIZE
              Messages larger than this value won´t be scanned. Make sure this value is lower  or
              equal than StreamMaxLength in clamd.conf
              Default: 25M

ACTIONS

       The   following   group  of  options  controls  the  delievery  process  under   different
       circumstances. The following actions are available:
       - Accept: The message is accepted for delievery
       - Reject: Immediately refuse delievery (a 5xx error is returned to the peer)
       - Defer: Return a temporary failure message (4xx) to the peer
       - Blackhole (not available for OnFail): Like Accept but the message is sent to oblivion
       - Quarantine (not available for OnFail): Like Accept but message is quarantined instead of
       being delivered. NOTE: In Sendmail the quarantine queue can be examined via mailq -qQ. For
       Postfix this causes the message to be placed on hold.

       OnClean STRING
              Action to be performed on clean messages (mostly useful for testing)
              Default: Accept

       OnInfected STRING
              Action to be performed on infected messages
              Default: Quarantine

       OnFail STRING
              Action to be performed on error conditions (this includes failure to allocate  data
              structures,  no  scanners  available, network timeouts, unknown scanner replies and
              the like)
              Default: Defer

       RejectMsg STRING
              This option allows you to set a specific rejection reason for infected messages and
              it´s  therefore  only useful together with "OnInfected Reject". The string "%v", if
              present, will be replaced with the virus name.
              Default: MTA specific

       AddHeader STRING
              If this option is set to "Replace" (or "Yes"),  an  "X-Virus-Scanned"  and  an  "X-
              Virus-Status"  headers  will  be  attached  to  each  processed  message,  possibly
              replacing existing headers.  If it is set to Add, the  X-Virus  headers  are  added
              possibly  on  top  of  the existing ones. Note that while "Replace" can potentially
              break DKIM signatures, "Add" may confuse procmail and similar filters.
              Default: no

       ReportHostname STRING
              When AddHeader is in use, this option allows you to set the reported hostname. This
              may  be  desirable  in  order  to  avoid  leaking internal names. If unset the real
              machine name is used.
              Default: disabled

       VirusAction STRING
              Execute a command (possibly searching PATH) when an infected message is found.  The
              following  parameters  are passed to the invoked program in this order: virus name,
              queue id, sender, destination, subject, message id, message  date.  Note  #1:  this
              requires  MTA macroes to be available (see LogInfected below). Note #2: the process
              is invoked in the context of clamav-milter. Note #3: clamav-milter  will  wait  for
              the  process  to  exit.  Be  quick  or  fork  to  avoid unnecessary delays in email
              delievery.
              Default: disabled

LOGGING OPTIONS

       LogFile STRING
              Enable logging to selected file.
              Default: no

       LogFileUnlock BOOL
              Disable  a  system  lock  that  protects  against  running  clamd  with  the   same
              configuration file multiple times.
              Default: no

       LogFileMaxSize SIZE
              Limit  the  size  of the log file. The logger will be automatically disabled if the
              file is greater than SIZE. Value of 0 disables the limit.
              Default: 1M

       LogTime BOOL
              Log time for each message.
              Default: no

       LogSyslog BOOL
              Use system logger (can work together with LogFile).
              Default: no

       LogFacility STRING
              Specify the type of syslog messages - please refer to  'man  syslog'  for  facility
              names.
              Default: LOG_LOCAL6

       LogVerbose BOOL
              Enable verbose logging.
              Default: no

       LogInfected STRING
              This  option allows you to tune what is logged when a message is infected. Possible
              values are Off (the default - nothing is logged), Basic (minimal info logged), Full
              (verbose info logged)
              Note:  For  this  to  work  properly  in sendmail, make sure the msg_id, mail_addr,
              rcpt_addr and i macroes are available in eom. In  other  words  add  a  line  like:
              Milter.macros.eom={msg_id},   {mail_addr},   {rcpt_addr},   i  to  your  .cf  file.
              Alternatively   use   the   macro:    define(`confMILTER_MACROS_EOM',    `{msg_id},
              {mail_addr}, {rcpt_addr}, i')
              Postfix should be working fine with the default settings.
              Default: disabled

       LogClean STRING
              This  option allows you to tune what is logged when no threat is found in a scanned
              message.
              See LogInfected for possible values and caveats.
              Useful in debugging but drastically increases the log size.
              Default: disabled

       SupportMultipleRecipients BOOL
              This option affects the behaviour of LogInfected, LogClean and VirusAction  when  a
              message with multiple recipients is scanned:
              If  SupportMultipleRecipients  is  off  (the  default) then one single log entry is
              generated for the message and, in case the message is determined to  be  malicious,
              the  command indicated by VirusAction is executed just once. In both cases only the
              last recipient is reported.
              If SupportMultipleRecipients is on then one line is logged for each  recipient  and
              the command indicated by VirusAction is also executed once for each recipient.
              Note:  although  it's probably a good idea to enable this option, the default value
              is currently set to off for legacy reasons.
              Default: no

NOTES

       All options expressing a size are limited to max 4GB. Values in excess will be resetted to
       the maximum.
