That error is tripped when MailScanner cannot find the socket file, or
access the socket file. The value in parenthesis is the value in the
MailScanner.conf file. Double check that you either do not have two
MailScanner.conf files and it's not defined twice. The default value for the
socket is 127.0.0.1 so it's not getting it from the default and it won't
make up a file name on it's own so MailScanner is getting that value from
somewhere and MailScanner is looking for /tmp/clamd not /tmp/clamd.socket or
/var/run/clamav/clamd.sock depending upon which LocalSocket value you have
posted above is correct.
