Well, after making the changes mentioned in my previous post, email ceased to be delivered all together (the mail queue began to fill-up).

Upon further investigation, I realized that I had misread the Amavis documentation: it states that antivirus is disabled by default and that to enable it, un-comment

# @bypass_virus_checks_maps = (...
In other words, Amavis's behavior should be the default: not to virus scan.

Why, then, with the above line commented, am I seeing the following in /var/log/mail.log?

amavis[25694]: (25694-01) (!)ClamAV-clamd: Can't connect to UNIX socket /var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl: 2, retrying (2)

Boy, this is frustrating.
