I don't think Clamd has a setting for maximum attachments in a message.

Anyway, I did some testing, and it seems the mention of virus scanner in

is a red herring. It is MailScanner itself complaining about too many
attachments. This is controlled by the MailScanner

Maximum Attachments Per Message

setting (default 200).
