Best is to download the source code, compile and then install it. yum won't update the rpm packages if updates are discontinued for Fedora 11.

If you have already downloaded and installed clamd successfully, then you have to set these parameters  in the /etc/clamd.conf file

User defang
LocalSocket /var/spool/MIMEDefang/clamd.sock

and some others too.

Note that this is socket path I told you to check in /usr/local/bin/mimedefang.pl file. If mimedefang detects clamd, it will communicate with it through this socket.
