Default Clamd Will Not Start

Hi All,

This morning we started seeing this in the headers of our emails:

X-Virus-Status: Failed
X-Virus-Report: /usr/bin/clamdscan error 2
X-Virus-Checker-Version: clamassassin 1.2.4 with clamdscan / ERROR: Can't connect to clamd: No such file or directory
Attempts to manually start clamd result in this

# service clamd start
Starting Clam AntiVirus Daemon: ERROR: LOCAL: Socket file unix:/var/run/clamav/clamd.sock could not be bound: No such file or directory
ERROR: Can't unlink the socket file unix:/var/run/clamav/clamd.sock
What is responsible for creating the socket and how do I make it do so?
