Attachments with suspicious file extensions (e.g. exe) will be renamed automatically: e.g., USELESS_EYE_CANDY.EXE would be renamed to USELESS_EYE_CANDY.DEFANGED12345-EXE, so that one cannot open the attachment thoughtlessly by double-clicking. The attachment first has to be saved to the hard disk and to be renamed to USELESS_EYE_CANDY.EXE before it can be opened.
Note: The mailscanner feature is not the same as the antivirus.

The ISPConfig installer comments out the PHP settings in your httpd.conf. PHP can be later enabled for each web separately in the ISPConfig web interface.
During the installation process I get the following error messages though the respective programs are installed on the server:
iptables: command not found
This means that the programs mentioned are not in the path of your Linux installation. Please type
on your command line, and make symbolic links to the programs in one of the directories that is in the path. For example, you can create a symbolic link to the program /path/to/apachectl in the directory /usr/bin by going into the directory /usr/bin and typing the following:
In standard mode the installer assumes standard values for you Linux distribution which may not always be correct (but in most cases).
