It's very important.

Would be an essential.

6 years later...
They dont even ******* care about customers. This is one of most voted features since years, but money comes first.
Probably looking for another solucion like cPanel its the better solution. I mean, Plesk was OK because prices was low compared to cpanel during years, but today the price its almost the same, so... bye bye plesk.
ClamAV is for cPanel a free plugin. In Plesk you have to pay for this. Because of security and financial reasons we are thinking about for changing the panel for next servers. Sorry but since 2016 it is a big feature request of community/customers of Plesk.

This is really neccessary. Many servers are badly protected without it. Its open source. Please add it as quick as possible.
Mark Finnis commented
This would be greatly appreciated.

Just do it and stop using Open Source in your PAID programs!

Please, please, PLEASE upgrade. We ALL need this.

Really not good not having ClamAV as an option for mail antivirus for free. We are already paying for Plesk license and for some additional features which are not essential for server work, but I think email antivirus should be counted as an essential feature! I know you are using it for Plesk Email Security Pro, but my opinion is that you will have more flyovers from cPanel if antivirus is available for free by defaut.

Please add this feature! It's a shame that it is not supported yet for free. Buy the way check this if you are familiar with command line: https://www.plesk.com/blog/product-technology/how-to-protect-email-servers-against-spam-viruses/
As mentioned before, clamav can be integrated (at least on Ubuntu) with a few simple steps. Thus, I really wonder what Plesk considers to be the expensive part of integrating this (except for losing people paying for the DrWeb extension).

You have to fix it!

@MEL it's not just making it unsafe, it's an embarrassment. ClamAV should be the entry level protection offered free and as standard.
If anyone is interested, if you're on a windows server, as long as you're able to specify which AV to use within your mail server software (Mailenable for example has built in support for ClamAV) you can setup ClamAV as a Windows Service yourself and then configure your mail server to use it https://java.pfreiberg.cz/how-to-run-clamav-as-windows-service/
Please add ClamAV support..
I was a cPanel/WHM user for over 15 years and ClamAV support is the one missing feature in Plesk that I think should be included. I don't think having to pay an extra fee for every VPS or server is always justified. The lack of scan for incoming or outgoing email is making the web unsafe.

Please add this feature.
I have my own vps for hosting my own site and also for a couple of friends (11 email addresses in total). I find the vps gives me better control over everything compared to a shared server. I really can't justify having to pay more than the annual cost of the server for the limited antivirus service I require.
Yes, it is not so funny. I hope is not because of purchase other extensions where are many expensive... because ClamAv is opensource.
