How to Remove/uninstall MailScanner

To remove MailScanner and the MailScanner Front-End, run these commands in shell as root:

cd /usr/mscpanel

cd /root
tar -xzf msinstall.tar.gz
cd msinstall/

Remove the sare rules and MailScanner-specific SpamAssassin configuration files (in shell as root):

cd /etc/mail/spamassassin/
rm -fv *sare*

To remove the MailScanner Configuration icon from cPanel, go to WHM > Packages > Feature Manager. Edit the “disabled” Feature List and uncheck the box for MailScanner Configuration.

Remove the root cron jobs that run, (or rules_du_jour), and the cronjob that restarts clamd (in shell as root):

crontab -e

Remove the following lines (if they exist – they may or may not be there) from /scripts/postupcp:

perl /usr/mscpanel/

Reset Exim Configuration (if desired), in WHM > Exim Configuration Editor > Reset All Configs to Defaults. This is not required. To remove our install of clamav, run these commands in shell as root:

killall clamd

/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/bin/clam*
/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/sbin/clam*
/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/lib/libclam*
/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/share/clam*
/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/include/clam*
/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/bin/freshclam*
/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/etc/clamav*
/bin/rm -Rfv /var/clamd

/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/bin/clam*
/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/sbin/clam*
/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/lib/libclam*
/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/share/clam*
/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/include/clam*
/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/bin/freshclam*
/bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/etc/clamav*
/bin/rm -fv /etc/init.d/clamd
/bin/rm -fv /etc/cron.daily/freshclam
/bin/rm -fv /etc/cron.hourly/freshclam
/bin/rm -fv /etc/cron.d/freshclam

In WHM > Service Configuration > Service Manager > Additional Services uncheck both boxes for clamav.

You can then install clamavconnector via WHM > Manage Plugins if desired. if you want to re-enable SpamAssassin through cPanel:

WHM > Tweak Settings > SpamAssassin > tick
WHM > Service Manager > spamd > tick both boxes
WHM > Feature Manager > Edit a Feature List > disabled > Edit > SpamAssassin and SpamAssassin Spam Box > tick
WHM > Feature Manager > Edit Feature List – edit any feature lists that you want to allow access to the SpamAssassin configuration in cPanel
