multi / cross posting is not going to help you much, what I suggest is
that you take one part at a time and see if it working as per your

take postfix see if you are able to accept mails and relay them to the
right place using the transport mechanism.

now add the mysql part to postfix and see if postfix can read your
recipients table and continue to accept / deliver mails properly.

now add the others (spamassassin, razor, pyzor, dcc, clamav etc..) and
check if spamassassin recognizes every other component (except clamav).

now install mailscanner, integrate it with postfix and check again if
mailscanner can read your spamassassin prefs and detect clamav.

Finally add mailwatch to complete your setup..

if at any point you face problems most of us will suggest you read the
maqs / faqs and search the mailing lists first before you post here.. in
the event you need to post here, follow the instructions from here..

most important check your logs (all maillog, apache, OS messages and
mysql), you'll be amazed at your own troubleshooting skils if you can
read the logs properly (and maybe help other newbies).
