       p3scan - fully transparent proxy scanning server for POP3 and SMTP


       p3scan [options]


       p3scan  is  a  fully  transparent  proxy scanning server for POP3, SMTP, and limited POP3S
       email clients. It runs on a Linux box with iptables (for port redirection).

       It implements a  centralized  email  scanning  point,  transparently  inspecting  messages
       fetched  by  internal network hosts from servers "in the wild" (the Internet) for viruses,
       worms, trojans, spam and potentially dangerous attachments. Since HTML email can  be  used
       by  spammers to validate the recipient address (via Web Bugs) p3scan can also provide HTML
       stripping by using the associated p3pmail (or other) program.

       It can also inspect outgoing SMTP messages for virus's.

       p3scan can help you in protecting your "Other OS" LAN especially if used synergically with
       a firewall and other proxy servers.

         Configuration file
         Symlink to the email message templates sent to client in event
         a virus is found. You can create a symlink, or copy a language
         file p3scan-??.mail for any language provided. If you translate
         a mail file into your own language, please consider contributing
         it to the project so that others may enjoy your work.
         Email templates for specific languages.
       /etc/p3scan/p3scan.footer (optional)
         This file is used to add the virus definition info from your scanner
         to an smtp message. It will only be added as a footer if the message
         is not signed cryptographically and is only a text message.
         It is used in conjunction with the "footer" option in the
         following fashion:

         1) If file does not exist and "footer" is defined:
            No footer information will added to outgoing messages, but the p3scan
            version and scanner info will be added to the header.

         2) If file exists but blank and "footer" is defined:
            P3Scan version/host info and scanner info will be added to end of
            message and header.

         3) If file contains information and "footer" is defined:
            All lines of this file will be added to the end of the smtp message and
            then p3scan version/host info and scanner info will be appended.

         4) If file does not exist and "footer" is not defined:
            P3Scan will only insert p3scan version info into the header.
         Executable program file
         This file is written when p3scan is running.
         Each email scanned is manipulated in this directory
         When a virus is found, the email sent to the client is generated here.
