I should turn SpamAssassin off then?  MailScanner automatically uses
SpamAssassin even when it's not running? (i.e. similar to that of

// from /etc/clamd.conf

LogFile /var/log/clamav/clamd.log
#LogVerbose yes

I'm not seeing any scan results in clamd.log, should I turn on
LogVerbose for more information to be updated in clamd.log?

# Execute a command when virus is found. In the command string %v will

# Default: no
#VirusEvent /usr/local/bin/send_sms 123456789 "VIRUS ALERT: %v"

Should this option also be on?

Thank you.
