That is not entirely true.

(search the archives for this subject -: ClamAV + worm in mbox file)

This can do the same thing for you in mbox format.  This was suggested
by Chrisof Damian (May 25 2004)


formail < evilmbox -s thescript.sh > virusfreembox

#!/bin/sh
TEMP=`mktemp XXXXXX`
cat > $TEMP
clamscan --quiet --unzip --mbox $TEMP 
if [ $? == 0 ]; then
  cat $TEMP
fi
rm $TEMP

After that, diff it to your org evolution mbox file.
