Okay, first off, you won't be needing the clamav-milter package.
MailScanner uses either clamscan or clamd but has no need for clamav-milter.

Second, if you're using the Perl module setup you may want to hunt around
for an RPM of the latest CVS version of Clamav.  The instability issues with
clamd that were present in the 0.67-1 release have been corrected (finally).

If you can't get the perl module setup to work reliably you might want to
consider switching to the clamscan wrapper mode instead.  The load on your
server will be a lot higher; however, it seems to "Just Work" right out of
the box.
