First, it's better to configure MailScanner to use clamd (and start clamd :)  ) . I have
May 28 14:29:04 mail MailScanner[9271]: ClamD Timed Out During PING Check!
May 28 14:29:04 mail MailScanner[9275]: ClamD Timed Out During PING Check!
May 28 14:29:12 mail MailScanner[8908]: Clamd::ERROR:: CLAM PING TIMED OUT! :: .
May 28 14:29:14 mail MailScanner[8764]: Clamd::ERROR:: CLAM PING TIMED OUT! :: .
May 28 14:30:05 mail MailScanner[8764]: Virus Scanning: No virus scanners worked, so message batch was abandoned and re-tried!

This happens just after FreshClam updated virus database and clamd loads new base. Loading virus database takes a while.
