So clamd is running, but MailScanner isn't using it....
Did you double check that the settings in clamd.conf and mailscanner.conf are
the same in regards to the clam socket and/or port?
Make sure you don't have 2 different clamd.conf files from a distro supplied
VS a source installed clam. AS for the clam perl module, it doesn't work with
0.94-2 without a patch.
MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
