Re: amavis virus scan broken new install

What's the permission of folder /var/spool/amavisd/tmp? Did you try 755?

# chmod 755 /var/spool/amavisd/tmp

Re: amavis virus scan broken new install

Did you restart Amavisd and ClamAV services?

Re: amavis virus scan broken new install

yes, both
service amavisd restart OK
service clamd restart OK

still get the same error.
I have also made those 2 dir a 777 but the dir created in tmp is a 750

Re: amavis virus scan broken new install

No idea yet. 755 on /var/spool/amavisd/tmp should be fine, and 750 on files under it should be fine too.
