Same permission problem. Running on Centos 5.4; MailScanner version
4.79.11; Perl version 5.008008 (5.8.8); calmav/clamd 0.96-1.el5.rf
I have tried with

"Incoming Work Group = clamav"
"Incoming Work Permissions = 0640"

in MailScaneer.conf but the error is still there.

I obtained better results modifying clamd.conf

"User root"

I'm not happy with this but at list is working. If someone have an
better alternative please give me at list an hint.
