To scan incoming mails for viruses, create to following script somewhere in your system:
#!/bin/bash # Fred Blaise <chapeaurouge AT madpenguin DOT org> # This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify # it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by # the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or # (at your option) any later version. # This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, # but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of # MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Now setup Evolution’s Incoming mail filters to pipe mails through your newly created script. If the return value is not
zero, a virus was detected and you might want to move the mail to
Trash or a special folder.
