Add ClamAV as module in Plesk to protect better the server. Thank you Parallels Team.
Is easy to use.

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).

@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.

Why this important feature is missing in Plesk? And this has been requested for 7 years... Still...??
Clamav/amavis is old news. I've started using rspamd on many servers it's way better. Big plus is also rspamd admin interface from where you can monitor a lot of stuff.

Paying a high monthly fee and still not getting ClamAV. Only able to install it via the paid extension Plesk Email Security. What a shame.
Just feels like this is being ignored to favour paid extensions. Slightly regretting leaving cpanel for plesk... it may be cheap and user friendly but seriously lacks major features
7 years and still no answer ... what is this sh*t ?
Honestly, Plesk Staff: Your response here and elsewhere should be flagged as a warning for anyone looking to purchase Plesk in the first place. If you refuse to allow support for a free antivirus solution, but support it as a part of your paid extension, then it's very obvious you're only interested in sneaky back-end upselling, and not supporting your lower-tier users.
Please fix this issue - any other response will have me looking elsewhere for my main hosting solution after my first year is up. (If it was in my first 30 days, I'd probably reverse the charge)
It works out of the box.

Nearly 1k votes and 7 Years and NO F***ING answer ... awsome support !!!!!!!
time to search another solutions there are another ways also in opensource:
http://centos-webpanel.com/features for free!
i will give it a try to get away from the "price on free software" plesk politics.
