Axigen comes with a number of built-in or connectors to supported anti-virus and anti-spam applications. While setting up Axigen, I decided to disable every one of these until later when I have the time to address these. Yet I see the log files (such as everything.txt) cluttered with various different error messages associated with these applications - for example -
2022-11-03 16:54:35 -0700 08 bigbang WEBADMIN:00000001: Filter AVG AntiVirus Filter loaded from file /var/opt/axigen/filters/avg.afsl

The AVG application’s status shows “Could not connect” even though I have disabled this application on the very same web page where this status message is shown! There are LOTs of other examples similar to this or slightly different -
2022-11-03 16:54:36 -0700 16 bigbang PROCESSING:00392322: << /var/opt/axigen//queue/39/D2322.00: File path check failure: Permission denied. ERROR

I could put a lot more examples in this post, but my question really is, What does “Disable” mean? To my software engineers mind, saying an app (or add-on) is disabled means I shouldn’t seen any error messages related to attempts to set up and/or start that app!
Or maybe I speak a different dialect of English? I am trying to track down why Axigen is not sending out emails to a maillist (different thread I may start soon) and seeing all these error messages is either simply making the logfiles confusing, or perhaps there IS something seriously broken that is causing all these failures that I am seeing.
