    All of those suggestions are PAID extensions.

    Considering that ~90% of Plesk depends already on FOSS/Open Source this is unacceptable.

    Hi @David Roussel,

    For now, these extensions are the only alternative.

    We do have a feature request to add ClamAV into Plesk. 
    Consider voting for it and left the comment why ClamAV suits your needs better then other anti-viruses.

    I'd also recommend following this article, to receive the notification once it is updated.

    Plesk are offering integration with PAID Antivirus Dr.Web - which does not deliver

    there is no status monitor, no history how many e-mails have been cleaned etc. when automatic licence retrial fails, you are left without protection

    there is no email notification to inform admin something is wrong with Plesk - Dr.Web

    Might be worth mentioning that the new plesk email security extension (also costs a few pennies) uses clamav

    As found in the corresponding UserVoice suggestion for Plesk (https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/4078720-add-clamav-as-module-in-plesk-to-protect-better-th):

    https://www.lloyd-day.me/migrate-plesk-to-clamav/ provides a a simple solution if you want to integrate ClamAV yourself.


    By not uninstalling DrWeb (free protection of 10 mailboxes), you can even run both in parallel by adapting the information in step 4 (settings for /etc/postfix/main.cf):

    For Dr. Web and ClamAV, please use:


    smtpd_milters = {inet:127.0.0.1:12768, default_action=accept}, { inet:127.0.0.1:3381, protocol=6, default_action=tempfail }
    non_smtpd_milters = inet:127.0.0.1:12768

    This setting also helps to avoid issues when DrWeb fails to scan e-mails (happens quite frequently in the free version)...

    Given the simplicity of integrating ClamAV, I still see some hope that this is integrated for all Plesk customers - without additional fees since ClamAV is freely available!
