qmail + qmailscanner

Hello to all out there....

I've got the following configuration:

RH 9
Qmail, qmail-scanner (with all requirments, Perl, DB,tnef, maildrop, etc)
F-Prot (virus-scanner)

All this works actually fine...

At this moment I am still waiting for my fix IP adress, so I cant Relay yet.
I use Getmail for fetching my mails from a ISP s Pop account. And I use also for all external mails his Smtp Server.

So, for all outgoing mails the qmail-scanner works just fine. But I still recieve emails containing Viruses and Attachments, that I block in the configuration (exe, pif, etc...)
this means that the qmail-scanner dont scann incomming mail.

Is this because I dont recieve mails with qmail, but with getmail or qmail-scanner is just a smtp outgoing scann tool ?

If so how can I scann the incomming mail, ?
I get at this moment about 10 - 15 threads every day!! I need to stop this... ,

Please help...

Thanks a lot
