Care and Feeding of ClamAV

Posted by Scott on Apr 17th, 2007

I recently upgraded the ClamAV mail virus scanner on my mail server, and discovered nearly a day later that email was being queued up but not delivered (oops!). The logs were pretty clear as to the cause:

ClamAV Perl module not found, did you install it?

It turns out that somewhere between version 0.88.4 and 0.90.2, the Mail::ClamAV perl module became a requirement. Fortunately I was all set a few minutes later with a quick invocation of cpan2rpm, and now I’m watching my mail spool slowly shrink from 10 MB.
