Hi all,

is it worth trying? 

We do have a large IMAP ~200GB, and in order to find letters containing
specific "keyword",
grep is not good because of base64 encoding. So the idea is to look
through with antivirus scanner for "virus" inside letters, which is not
a virus but a (not sure, may be) "bytecode signature" = "keyword"

Sounds good? A link to a howto will be appreciated.
