Comment 1 Nigel Horne 2007-06-09 20:31:41 UTC
What's in your /etc/sysconfig/clamav-milter file?

What's the output of "fgrep clam /etc/mail/sendmail.cf"?

Comment 2 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2007-11-22 18:21:56 UTC
/etc/sysconfig/clamav-milter:

CLAMAV_FLAGS='-lo -c /etc/clamd.d/milter.conf
local:/var/run/clamav-milter/clamav.sock'


sendmail.cf doesn't have it installed by default; you have to install
sendmail-cf RPM and then dig for the /usr/share/doc/clamav-milter<ver>/INSTALL
file to be told what should be added to the sendmail.mc file.

That information (in the INSTALL file) is _incorrect_ and needs to be changed.

What would be best is to have the clamav-milter package ensure that sendmail.cf
is in place, and then to either make the additions itself (maybe via an m4
include) or to mail a note to root telling her that the addition of lines to the
sendmail.mc file are needed.  There is "too much" manual intervention required
by clamav-milter (with no clear description provided) for most users to handle.

closing bug as the newer version has clearer instructions and it may have just
been a PEBKAC on my part.
