Re: amavis/clamav failure

Does it work after restart amavisd + clamav services?

Re: amavis/clamav failure

I restarted amavis, clamav-daemon & clamav-freshclam in that order.

Now there are no entries in the mail.err

My lack of knowledge and understanding now makes me ask why? and how do I fix this?
