Mailscanner not using Clamd

I am using MailScanner 5.3.3, Postfix 2.8.11 & Clamd 0.102.4 on Suse
Linux 12.2 (yes its is old). Until recently I had F-prot working with
Mailscanner to scan emails but Cyren have stopped supporting F-prot (or
will have by July 2021). Si I thought I would use Clamav (clamd) to do
virus scanning. Unfortunately although Mailscanner finds clamd and
detects the Eicar.com test file emails don't seem to be going through
clamd. e.g. I sent an Eicar test file to my gmail account expecting it
to be found by mailscanner/clamd but it doesn't get found. In fact there
are no log entries in mail for clamd during sending/receiving emails.
I have checked my configuration for mailscanner, clamd and postfix but
can't see anything obvious. However I found the mailscanner postfix
instructions https://www.mailscanner.info/postfix/ which states
postfix needs to be CHROOTED to work with Mailscanner. Is this
necessary? my postfix is a suse system package v 2.8.11-2.6.1 which I
can Chroot it if necessary via Sysconfig.
