Hi, mark:

Original I guessed I need to install some software for protect my mail
server, so I searched and found those softwares, which I thought useful.

spamassassin, clamAV really works for spam protection and virus protection.

The previous problem is due to my MailScanner configuration.

Now it seems to work ok.

Thanks a lot for your concern.
