Why use this (very) old version?
Get the latest stable version from then go
read (most of) the wiki (, with special
attention to the MAQ.

A much better question is: If you are using such an outdated version
of MailScanner, is your ClamAV equally out of date?
Latest stable there is 0.90.3, and you can get it in a very convenient
and easy install package (along with SpamAssassin 3.2.0) from
Details on how to manually test your system for all sorts of problems
are in the wiki ... Do look through it.
The really bad thing with an outdated ClamAV is that you will not get
signature updates if it is too much out of date...
