been busy ... hence a late reply.
You're better of NOT using clamav through mimedefang, I used to do that 
to. You find loads of info in the internet why hooking it to sendmail is 

install the clamav-milter and then in sendmail.mc do:
The next is ONE LINE:
INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`clamav',`S=local:/var/clamav/clamav_milter.sock, F=T, 
T=S:4m; R:4m')

and in clamd.conf
LocalSocket /var/clamav/clamd_local.sock

and in clamav-milter.conf
MilterSocket unix:/var/clamav/clamav_milter.sock
ClamdSocket unix:/var/clamav/clamd_local.sock
