    This indicates that you may have an environment-related problem, such
    as a problem with the permissions of the user invoking the sanitizer
    or stuff being missing from the PATH which is present when you do it
    by hand.

    Or perhaps your MTA is simply using a restricted shell which won't
    allow the sanitizer to execute the scan-for-viruses script?
