Since you are using CentOS 5, you can enable the rpmforge repo and get
spamassassin and clamav from yum.
The yum repo has a working clamd setup, and even Julian has recommended this
way with CentOS.
MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
