Clam antivirus does not disinfect anything. It also doesn't delete anything.
Since clamav in any incarnation does not disinfect anything there would
never be a disinfected file to deliver. There is no help as it is doing
exactly what it's documentation states... Finds the files and let's you (in
this case MailScanner) handle them.


This message has been scanned for viruses and
dangerous content by MailScanner, and is
believed to be clean.
