Check your clamav version.
This is very good for a free software, but it needs constant updating.

Last stable "secure" version in 0.93. It's only a couple of days old.

 Thanks for all the responses.

 I went with qmail+clamav and spamassassin, it seems to be working fine
 for the moment, i do however get some strange log activity sometimes:

 clamdscan: corrupt or unknown clamd scanner error or memory/resourc
 e/perms problem - exit status 512/2

 I've been googlin a bit and havent found a "real" solution to the problem.
 Someone suggested running clamd as root, is that really a good idea?
 Another suggested to remove clamd_scanner from the scanner_array in

 The box has 1GB RAM an, so i assume its not a memory problem (checked
 ramusage while that error popped up in the logs)

 resource/perms problem, how can i check which resources it needs
 and/or which permissions are needed?

 // Thanks in advance
