'pymavis' is an email parser similar to the old amavis (or amavis-perl). It email retrieves attachments and runs various virus scanners over them, since the email parsing function of most virus scanners is very limited (most can parse RFC-compliant messages only) or broken. It can also find other signs of viruses and malware can be found. It does partial content checking, and currently knows how to list ZIP files. Some heuristics are performed to distinguish between normal messages and malware.
