Hi Kai,

Sorry for the wrong mail to the maillist.
I have fixed the problem. With the upgrade of centos 5.2 to 5.3 there is 
an new clamaav-milter installed wich uses an new set of configuration 
files. The old config file in /etc/sysconfig isn't deleted with the 
upgrade. After deleting the configfile there are no problems anymore.

Kind Regards,
