Subject: Automatic virus scan of uploaded files on BBS?

Does anyone remember if there were any BBS systems back in the day that 
would scan any uploaded files for viruses before saving them in the files 

Replies copied to me directly would be appreciated.

Anyone coming up with a solid example wins a prize.

I ran a Citadel on a dos machine that scanned all uploads for viruses if you
had a dos virusscanner installed, you had to configure it for your
particular virus scanner (location, command line options, etc) it was part
of the post-upload config.
