Hi Jon (and everyone else),

Ok, then how do we go about figuring out if ClamAV is even scanning the
message? I don't see much in the maillog that indicates whether it was
or wasn't scanned by Clam and what the result was.

Is there a way of turning on a supplemental log for ClamAV? Adjusting
the wrapper, perhaps?
