Hello Folks,

I have Postfix 2.5.5 running with Amavis [amavisd-new-2.6.4 (20090625)]
integrated with ClamAV 0.96.1

I need to know if there is any default *Scan Timeout* or *Timeout *for
amavis process. I can see the below limit options in amavisd.conf but no
options for how long will amavis process would scan a given email before
timing out if any

$MAXFILES = 1500;
$MIN_EXPANSION_QUOTA =      100*1024;  # bytes  (default undef, not
$MAX_EXPANSION_QUOTA = 300*1024*1024;  # bytes  (default undef, not

Is there any child_timeout value associated with amavis, if yes, what is it
and if it has any default value ?

Please find my sample amavid.conf file.


With Regards
Anirudha Patil
