HI Mike, everyone..
Yes, you should disable spamassassin in your init.d startup, unless you're using for something else.
MS calls the SA routines directly and does not need the SA daemon.
To verify your clamav is working and logging properly... send yourself one of the Eicar sigs until
you get the desired effect.

I should turn SpamAssassin off then? MailScanner automatically uses SpamAssassin even when it's not running? (i.e. similar to that of sendmail?).
// from /etc/clamd.conf
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 # be replaced with the virus name.
# Default: no
#VirusEvent /usr/local/bin/send_sms 123456789 "VIRUS ALERT: %v"
Should this option also be on?
