You do realise that these are not the same thing, I hope?

They're the same virus scanning engine, but two different versions, which are 
used in very different ways - "clamav" is a command-line scanner, whereas 
"clamavmodule" is a Perl module which talks directly to the scanning engine 
and is more efficient in use.

You might be better off leaving the config setting as "Virus Scanners = auto" 
so that MailScanner can use whatever you really do have installed.
