ClamAV logging

Hi All,

Was just testing my system for AV response and concluded that in the maillog there are no entries for ClamAV. If I remember correctly this was the case in the past and i never noticed that it is not anymore. I think after installing a new MailScanner box.
Anyone can point me in the right direction of checking why logging is not added?

Mailscanner – lint gives me:

Checking version numbers...
Version number in MailScanner.conf (5.0.6) is correct.

Your envelope_sender_header in spamassassin.conf is correct.
MailScanner setting GID to  (89)
MailScanner setting UID to  (89)

Checking for SpamAssassin errors (if you use it)...

If any of your virus scanners (clamav)
are not listed there, you should check that they are installed correctly
and that MailScanner is finding them correctly via its virus.scanners.conf.

Thank you in advance.
