If you use rpm's for clam, don't install clam from Julian's package. When you 
run the install script, it asks you if you are using other clam sources.
Then if you want to keep your clam up to date you put dag's repo in your yum 
configuration and update clam that way.

You can get clamd running from Julian's install package, as there are several 
sample init scripts in the clam tarball if you want to do it that way.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
