Answer

  • When specify the maximum file size which is considered for virus scanning. The default value is 2 GB.
  • Regardless of the ‘scan-mandatory’ setting, if the specified maximum file size is exceeded, the file is not scanned before it is released to clients.
  • If set the maximum size of the file to a low limit, for example: 1 MB, then any files above this limit is not scanned.
