Default Amavis trouble with Postfix

Hi,

I changed over from using Exim on my Domain server as I wasn't happy with it.

Now I'm trying to get Amavis working with Spamassassin and ClamAV, so I found a few sites on google however I keep getting errors when Amavis tries to start scanning the email.

Code:
Jul  2 23:16:24 OptiplexGX270T amavis[2891]: (02891-01) (!) /usr/bin/clamscan is taking longer than 315 s and will be killed

(in reply to end of DATA command))
Also I can't understand why Amavis can't connect to socket:

Code:
(Can't connect to UNIX socket /var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl
as the dir is there?:
Code:
kayasaman@OptiplexGX270T:/var/run/clamav$ ls
clamd.ctl  clamd.pid  freshclam.pid
As a result I had many error emails sent back to me when I tried using my other accounts to send a test mail to my server - this is why I ran away from Exim in the first place!

Can anyone help me with how to solve this issue?

Many Thanks

What's the output of
Code:
ls -la /var/run/clamav
?
Are amavisd or Postfix running chrooted?

OptiplexGX270T:/home/kayasaman# ls -la /var/run/clamav
total 16
drwxr-xr-x 2 clamav clamav 4096 2008-07-21 14:14 .
drwxr-xr-x 22 root root 4096 2008-07-21 13:40 ..

-rw-rw---- 1 clamav clamav 4 2008-07-21 13:39 freshclam.pid

Is output.

How can I test for amavisd and postfix is using chrooted?

I don't think they are but I'm not certain.

What happens when you replace
Code:
smtp inet n - - - - smtpd
with
Code:
smtp inet n - n - - smtpd
and restart Postfix?

I had a pretty fast delivery of mail so it seems to have worked I guess but I had another problem with aliases.db file which was older then file aliases.

I did: nano /etc/aliases.db then ctrl o and restart postfix now my whole mail system seems to have gone kablueey?

Code:
Jul 27 11:55:47 OptiplexGX270T postfix/smtpd[4633]: fatal: open database /etc/aliases.db: Invalid argument
Not sure if this is used by postfix and if I can simply rm /etc/aliases.db and let it create a new one.

Anyway I can't be certain if the above worked untilll this works and I can read my mails posted by logcheck as they give me verbosity in amavis output!

Have to run to work now but will investigate more about the aliases.db later when I come back.

Ok finally I just checked the output of logcheck and amavis doesn't seem to be mentioned at all with mail delivery so I'm taking this to be a good sign.

Can't find any logs for it so for now all I can do is wait till the next delivery of logcheck mail and see if things are consistant!

-But all looks promising
