MailScanner 4.78.17 doesn't detect viruses, have checked tmp
permissions and no symlink, reinstalled clamav (worked in 4.77.10)

Check your virus.scanners.conf file to ensure it is pointing at the
correct place for clamav.
If "which clamscan" reports /usr/local/bin/clamscan then the clamav line
in virus.scanners.conf should end in "/usr/local" and if it reports
/usr/bin/clamscan then the line should end in "/usr".
That would be the first place to look. Then "MailScanner --lint" should
detect the EICAR test pattern successfully. Once "MailScanner --lint"
works, you're there.
