I've noticed these errors in my maillog:

Feb 12 09:27:06 dmzsvr14v amavis[1401]: (01401-01) (!)run_av (ClamAV-clamd) FAILED - unexpected , output="/var/spool/amavisd/tmp/amavis-20140212T092705-01401-iNC5oOO9/parts: lstat() failed: Permission denied. ERROR\n"

Feb 12 09:27:06 dmzsvr14v amavis[1401]: (01401-01) (!)WARN: all primary virus scanners failed, considering backups

There appears to be a permissions error that is causing ClamAV to fail? I've checked that clamd is running.

Thanks!

Please show us output of below commands, we need to know the permission on below directories:

# ls -dl /var/spool/amavisd/
# ls -l /var/spool/amavisd/

Here you go:

ls -l /var/spool/amavisd/
total 52
srwxr-x---    1 amavis amavis     0 Feb 13 05:56 amavisd.sock

Re: ClamAV Failed (permissions error)

What's the system user ClamAV service running as? Please add ClamAV user to Amavisd group "amavis". for example:

# usermod clamav -G amavis

Also, set permission 0750 to /var/spool/amavisd/tmp:

# chmod -R 0750 /var/spool/amavisd/tmp

If it doesn't work, try 0770 instead.
