Well, inflex is *very* similar to AMaViS.

Quote from inflex: This program was created with the assistance of
looking at

Afaik there's a commercial version, if this is an infringement to GPL, I
don't know and I don't care. Everyone can look at the source and can
choose, which product he prefers most and fits best for his purposes.

Inflex supports blocking of files, AMaViS supports nearly all anti virus
products and more MTAs. But I had a look at inflex some time ago, so
things may have changed.

I would recommend to use AMaViS-Perl, but, well, I'm biased ;-)
Anyway, several tools for blocking certain files or virus scanning at
the mail server do exist, see:

Linux anymore).
