hello plp,

I desided to post on deferent post since one problem is not related to the other
thous separating the answers...(hope you understand...)

I got sendmail 8.13 on debian 3.1 with mimedefang + clamd + sa.
The mimedefang works ok with sa , and i can see the resolts of preventing spam
and the changes to the headers. (though mimedefang deliver non spam mail to
spamdrop mailbox?!?)

But this post is about clamd!
so...although clamd was install before mimedefang using the 'defang' user to
and mimedefang is aware of clamd (i checked it in config.log) and clamd.sock is
available in /var/spool/MIMEDefang/clamd.sock, still viruses come through (i
used  eicar checks) and i NO X-headers about virus scan nor log entry in
/var/log/mail.log or /var/log/clamd.log

my guess is that mimedefang is not using the clamd and not scanning for
why is that?
how can i fix that??

10x for your thoughts...
