I want to move my mail server from sendmail to postfix over christmas. I've 
got a test server running with the following:

postfix dovecot postgrey amavisd-new clamav spamassassin

I've followed the howto's on the wiki <http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos> with the 
exception that I installed amavisd-new and clamav from the EPEL repo rather 
than rpmforge.

Things work OK with the exception of clamav. When I start  clamav I get the 
following error.

[root at newgoext ~]# service clamd.amavisd start
Starting clamd.amavisd: ERROR: Missing argument for option at line 2
ERROR: Can't open/parse the config file /etc/clamd.d/amavisd.conf

As this is a test server I'v set selinux to permissive so it doesn't look like 
a selinux problem.
