Denial Of Service Attack Messages

OK. So I upgraded to v5.0.2-1 and I created a group called mtagroup and
added smmsp, smmta, www-data, clamav to the group. I changed the:
Incoming Work User = clamav
Incoming Work Group = mtagroup
Incoming Work Permissions = 0660
Also, I set in clamd.conf:
Still showing the problem. Maybe 30 messages today have the error.
All look like this:
Jun 1 05:50:14 mail MailScanner: Virus and Content Scanning: Starting
Jun 1 05:50:20 mail MailScanner: HTML disarming died, status = 13
Jun 1 05:50:20 mail MailScanner: Content Checks: Detected and
have disarmed KILLED tags in HTML message in u51BoCcl030596 from
bounce-21178_html-182046758-2943000-10142840-4602 at bounce.homedepotemail.com
Any ideas? Is there a way to add additional logging? It also seems to
me like it would be better to allow these messages be delivered without
modification rather than removing the content with the denial of service

I also set work permissions to 0660 and the incoming work group to mtagroup making sure that postfix, clam, etc. users are in the group. I also allow supplementary groups in clamd.conf.
