Hello,

I hope to update using tutorial.

The original  CentOS 6.4  iRedMail  8.4 build used clamav .097.8-1 from epel repo.

Other postings mention using iredmail repo with different version of clamav.


# yum list installed | grep clam
clamav.x86_64          0.97.8-1.el6     @epel                           
clamav-db.x86_64       0.97.8-1.el6     @epel                           
clamd.x86_64           0.97.8-1.el6     @epel     

Do you recommend removing  epel package and replacing with clamav from iredmail repo?
Nothing mentioned in upgrade tutorial.

Please use ClamAV from EPEL. I know it's conflict with post mentioned in @annonman's link, please allow me to explain:

With the latest iRedMail release, EPEL is default third-party yum repository, iRedMail will try to install RPMs from EPEL first, if not available, iRedMail yum repo will provide it. So, please always install Amavisd, ClamAV from EPEL.

With EPEL, we can reduce our workload for building RPMs. And for you, EPEL is a big project sponsored by Red Hat, it's more trustable than me.
