The services can be enabled/disabled with the admin GUI. If you need to know where exactly, let me know and I'll go look. Also, what version of Zimbra are you using?

Quiero optimizar la entrega de correo porque el antivirus vuelve lenta la entrega de correo.
Zimbra Version 4.0.5 GA 518 on Centos 4.2

No, i only want disable this service, only need spamassassin to reduce de time of delivery of messages.
The question is: How I disable antivirus(which include amavis and clamd) and enable antispam.
Actually my services say:

$ zmcontrol status

Host host.mydomain.com

antispam Running

ldap Running

logger Running

mailbox Running

mta Running

snmp Running
but in the zimbra.log i don't see any activity of spamassassin

Ditto...we just put in an IronPort device...where's the spot to disable Antispam?
Matt
I think I figured it out....it's on the server tab for the MTAs....doesn't look like it can be disabled from the Global-AV/AS tab.

It is causing message retrieval to take 10-20 seconds instead of a millisecond.
Invariably when I see such lags, there are java clamav processes each taking 100% of the cpu.
I tried throwing more memory and cpu to the server, but it made no difference.

I do not have any windows users, and clamav is moronic. I'd rather lock the doors against intruders than waste time analyzing their droppings.

The reason I like to keep Zimbra's AS/AV in place even when you have inbound and outbound AS/AV protection (from IronPort, Mimecast, Barracuda or similar) is that Zimbra routes email for any domain it hosts entirely internally. So, if one mailbox starts emailing malware to every other mailbox on the server, you have to rely on every user having some form of endpoint protection on all of their devices.

Sure, Mimecast and ProofPoint do the journaling trick to try to stop on-domain malware propagation, but there is a lag, and so keeping Zimbra's anti-spam IMHO is a good idea.

I have a blog post about recommended best practices; you could skip the third-party blacklists if you are on a super-tight budget.

Hope that helps,
