How are you catching these spam

Yep, one config pointed to /tmp/clamd.socket but another pointed to
/tmp/clamd so I changed them both to /tmp/clamd and that is where it is
placed. Using clamd (which I will switch back to) I am getting hits on
other Sanesecurity.* but not the Sanesecurity.Spam.ldb.14 - and possibly
others. I have searched the system and I only see the sanesecurity files
in the two places I think they are supposed to be. Could I have done
something to make clamd and clamscan react differently to the same file?

Current wisdom is that you should stick with Clamd.

Is the value for Clamd Socket correct?  It must match the one in
/etc/clamd.conf.  On my system it is /tmp/clamd.socket
