I don't think there will be any significant difference between
communicating with clamd via a TCP vs. a unix socket. The bulk of the
time should be in the clamd process itself, not in communication.

Normally, there is less overhead in communicating via a unix socket, but
I don't think this is going to be significant,

Anyway, I was suggesting you configure clamd and MailScanner to use a
unix socket and not TCP. It seemed your issue might have been that
MailScanner was trying to use the unix socket but clamd was listening on
a TCP port.
