Default What is doing clamav in default Perfect Server

Hello, I am just wondering what is clamav doing in default Perfect Server installation: like this. I mean ... is it checking emails for viruses or is it checking FTP? It is consuming way too much resources and I don't have any clients on my server. Every website and email account is used by educated person. ClamAV helps my clients or server(me)?

I do not want to uninstall rkhunter, nor amavisd. I know they are both important but I don not think that ClamAV scanning is very important.

Ok i found this article but it is about antivirus and spamfilter disabling. So i can not disable only antivirus in ispconfig? I also found another article and was also about antivirus and spamfilter.

You may disable just ClamAV. It is works like that email comes --> smtp --> amavis (amavis do spam test and antivirus check) --> inbox.
so You must disable ClamAV inside amavis, here is some post i found about it:
http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/arc...p/t-44443.html
Also there is hint here: http://www.faqforge.com/linux/contro...n-ispconfig-3/

just skip amavis steps, there will be some info in logs about Clam do not work, but You want it to not work.
