Yes.  All you have to do is add the clamav user to the defang group,
and make sure your MIMEdefang spool dir has permissions equivalent
to this:

drwxr-x--- 9 defang defang 260 2014-04-25 15:36 /var/spool/MIMEDefang/

My spool dir is a tmpfs so I put those permissions into fstab to
ensure they are set at mount time.

I also use the -G option for MIMEdefang, but I can't remember if
it's necessary.

If you have selinux enabled, you may have other issues.  But I always
disable it.
