Make shure that ClamAV running (run ps -ef | grep clamav in console).

By the way, same problem as yours http://www.iredmail.org/forum/topic2383 … dmail.html

Mine clamav.log empty too. Look into /var/log/clamav/clamd.log
Did you try
  # freshclam
  # /etc/init.d/clamav-freshclam restart
before restarting clamav daemon?

Re: New install on Ubuntu 12.04 - mail is only delivered on server reboot

yes I had run freshclam and the freshclam restart commands before trying the clamav-daemon start command, but still no luck. I found another post somewhere that said that they had to increase memory to get the clamav-daemon to start, so I tried that.

Sure enough after bumping up my 512MB linode up to 1GB, everything started up and kept running.

Mystery Solved!
