        Thank you very much.  I was a little fuzzy about how the
mcAfee product with its data base got there or what it looked
like, etc.

        It is probably not worth the extra load to have
antivirus-milter on there although I see now that had mcAfee
been there, it would have probably done its job.

        I am the only major inbound Email account on that system,
but it is a rather busy workhorse for our group and is already
busy enough that one notices slowdowns at times and, when we
check, it is all legitimate.  In this business, paranoia is a virtue.

Again, thanks for your help.
