Clamd should either use a unix socket or a tcp socket, not both.

For a unix socket, clamd.conf should have

LocalSocket /var/run/clamd.scan/clamd.sock
FixStaleSocket true
LocalSocketGroup clamscan
LocalSocketMode 666

and should not define TCPSocket or TCPAddr

and MailScanner should have

Clamd Socket = /var/run/lamd.scan/clamd.sock

For a TCP socket, clamd.conf should have

TCPSocket 3310

and not define LocalSocket, FixStaleSocket, LocalSocketGroup or

and MailScanner should have

Clamd Port = 3310
Clamd Socket =

In your case, if you have TCPSocket and TCPAddr defined in clamd.conf, I
think just removing them may fix the issue.
