Thanks for the reply Rene,
Current ClamAV version is 0.88.6.
Log shows: 
Dec  1 16:31:43  MailScanner[28665]: New Batch: Found 2 messages waiting
Dec  1 16:31:43  MailScanner[28665]: New Batch: Scanning 1 messages, 10461
Dec  1 16:31:44  MailScanner[28515]: Virus and Content Scanning: Starting

... so I assume this means that it's working?
Option: Virus Scanners = clamav
There's nothing obvious that I can see from that :(
