I do own the first edition of the book. Just need to update the newer 
config options.

One last error I found so maybe you can comment. I am seeing the 
following error in maillog:

Cannot lock /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/Locks/clamavBusy.lock, 
Permission denied

So I checked the permissions there and the Locks directory is owned by 
postfix.root and the locks inside are all owned by root.root. 
MailScanner runs as postfix and clamd runs as clamav. Should the 
clamavBusy.lock be owned by postfix.clamav? Also, I was sure I had 
changed these permissions earlier in this and it appears as though they 
have been reset, So I need to set a sticky bit?
