Check your settings to make sure MailScanner is writing your PID to a directory that exists. (/var/run/MailScanner.pid is best to use.) If the PID cannot be created because you are using something like /var/run/MailScanner/MailScanner.pid, then the cron that checks MailScanner will start a new instance every hour. Pretty soon you are running a ton of MailScanner processes and run out of memory and then ClamAV cannot start or have memory to operate if it is started.

I have the following errors filling up my messages log file
[LibClamAV] mpool_malloc(): Attempt to allocate 8388608 bytes
I am pretty certain it is related to freashclam processes but cannot find a reason why ?
I know it is not the clamav list which I have just joined but hoping someone might have a fix..
