The /var/qmail/simscan directory is set as follows:

drwxr-s---  2 simscan simscan 4.0K 2010-03-01 08:46 simscan

I've also noticed that everything is working in that mail is going in and out and getting scanned. I checked the log files and the issue began Friday 2/26/10 at around 3:00pm EST just after the database reloaded. Before that it was working properly. I'm really not sure what is going on..... Is there an update or something I don't know about?

I think /var/qmail/simscan directory should be setgid.

Clamav creates files with 600 permissions, so group members can't access them.

This is from my server:
drwxr-s--- 71 simscan simscan 4096 Mar  1 11:34 simscan

        Clamd is running as simscan.

Subject: [vchkpw] Simscan clamav error

Hi all,

I've just built out a new mail system using vpopmail and simscan on the
latest version of Ubuntu. Everything is working well with one exception.
When I check the clamav.log I see the following error  WARNING: lstat()
failed on: /var/qmail/simscan/. /var/qmail/simcan has simscan:simscan as
the owner and the group. And clamav is a member of the simscan group.
And the permission seem correct. Any suggestions ?
