clamav isn't the problem. Wait a month and your output will look like this.
This happens when clamav wants you to update clamd and whatever. That's fine
but the admin might not get to it as soon as it becomes outdated, but with
this issue mail smtp breaks immediatly so the admin is forced to update
clamav the very second the scanning engine becomes outdated. I first
discovered this when I got a custom smtp rejection full of astisks
"******************", it was the first line of clamscans output. as soon as
I update clamscan simscan's smtp sessions work.
