    Hi SamTzu,

    Thanks for your reply, the centos one looks like it might do the trick, but there are too many missing commands that I dont understand.

    Time to rebuild another server it seems.

    Thanks again.

    As this is a general debian problem, I guess they will or have released already updates for it. So make sure that you installed all debian updates. As alternative you can e.g. use the clamav packages from the debian volatile project:

    for redhat, centos or fedora based linux, you can try using dag wieers repository. It is quite up-to-date with their clamav.

    Or you can download manually the rpm from

    Then run "rpm -Uvh clamv-latest-version.rpm".

    There's no clamav packages >0.94 for Fedora 10

    oh sorry. I too have stopped using FC long time already. If you want to use the server for live usage, better change to using centos or rhel. FC is really not suitable for use as servers. If you want better packages management then ubuntu is much better. Get LTS version which have a lifetime of 2 years.

    My last experience with FC10/11/12 is really appaling. The developer for FC is turning it into some clown show. Since FC10, they have abandoned support for old hardware. Network never work the first time you install. You are forced to use selinux which 99.999% of people disable after install.

    My question was not a lecture regarding which linux distro is better. Just a fix if there was one.

    I disagree for you saying that Fedora is not good for live usage. I had these servers up since the RC release and hosting about 15 clients for web/mail and had no major issues. It's not easy moving them to a different server if you possibly know what I mean.

    If I would start over and would had predict the future, yes.. I would choose something else over Fedora 10.

    Anyways, I found a work around to at lease process mails. (post up top).

    Is there a way to disable ClamAV/Amavis in ISPConfig3? (Debian)

    Edit the file /etc/amavis/conf.d/15-av_scanners

    and add # signs before the lines for amavis:

    # ['ClamAV-clamd',
    #   \&ask_daemon, ["CONTSCAN {}\n", "/var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl"],
    #   qr/\bOK$/, qr/\bFOUND$/,
    #   qr/^.*?: (?!Infected Archive)(.*) FOUND$/ ],

    #  ['ClamAV-clamscan', 'clamscan',
    #    "--stdout --disable-summary -r --tempdir=$TEMPBASE {}",
    #    [0], qr/:.*\sFOUND$/, qr/^.*?: (?!Infected Archive)(.*) FOUND$/ ],
    and restart amavisd.

    For all other linux distributions its bascically the same, just take a look into the amavisd.conf file.

    For some reason now viruses, mailware and other not good things found by ClamAV are staying in the postfix queue, and are not beeing deleted!
    I guess that the problem is "/var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl" as I do not have it.
    Should ClamAV create this file, or am I missing something?

    Restarted "clamav" and the server several times with no luck

    Mail with no viruses are fine.

    Looks as you have not commented out both clamav sections (there are two sections that have to be changed), otherwise there can not be such a message.

    Also make sure that you have set "Virus Lover" to yes and "Bypass virus checks" to yes in all policys to ensure that the emails were not checked for viruses.

    I DO want to use the virus scanner.
    All I did was what voltron81 suggested in his post.
    As mentioned in the link to the "howto" I commented out the stuff in "/etc/amavis/conf.d/15-content_filter_mode"

    I'm having real trouble with this fix.

    My source looks file sources.list looks like this:

    ## deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 _Lenny_ - Official Multi-architecture amd64/i386/powerpc NETINST #1 20090906-12:17]/ lenny main
    #deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 _Lenny_ - Official Multi-architecture amd64/i386/powerpc NETINST #1 20090906-12:17]/ lenny main

    deb lenny/volatile main contrib non-free
    I get the report that I have the latest and therefore nothing to upgrade. See below:
