I got it, clam and postfix to play with out AMAVIS read on. Below are quick details to setting up clamsmtp with postfix. It also setup's debain with an up to date version of Clam.

Before you begin to read, please note I am writing the expecting you have got a working postfix server, if not I suggest get it working correctly and then follow on. 1. Get the correct clam installed

The default clam install are not up to date. Add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list

deb sarge/volatile main
Now Update
apt-get update
now install :)
apt-get install clamsmtp clamav-freshclam
2. Edit the clamsmtp file

Edit the /etc/clamsmtpd.conf file and change OutAddress: 10025 to OutAddress: 10026. also change Listen: to Listen:
3. Edit the postfix files

Add the following to /etc/postfix/

content_filter = scan:
receive_override_options = no_address_mappings

Add the following to /etc/postfix/

# AV scan filter (used by content_filter)
scan      unix  -       -       n       -       16      smtp
        -o smtp_send_xforward_command=yes
# For injecting mail back into postfix from the filter inet  n -       n       -       16      smtpd
        -o content_filter=
        -o receive_override_options=no_unknown_recipient_checks,no_header_body_checks
        -o smtpd_helo_restrictions=
        -o smtpd_client_restrictions=
        -o smtpd_sender_restrictions=
        -o smtpd_recipient_restrictions=permit_mynetworks,reject
        -o mynetworks_style=host
        -o smtpd_authorized_xforward_hosts=
4. Conclusion

Restart postfix and clamsmtp. Follow the mail.log and check for errors.

Send yourself a virus and see if clam will catch it.

Hope this will help somebody, drop me a line if it did. joeblack at pixelporn dot co dot za.
