    as far as I can tell, the mail server on my system won't work any more, because clamav doesn't work. When asking for the status, it always says "activating", but it doesn't. For more than 24 hours now no mail gets through.
    In clamd-log it says again and again:
    ERROR: LOCAL: Socket file /var/run/clamd.amavisd/clamd.socket is in use by another process. Closing the main socket.
    It's similar when I ask the status of amavis (says it cannot connect to clamd...)

    The problem seems to have resolved by itself, this morning the mails are working again. However, the status of clamd remains "activating", but without the error message.
