Hi,

this morning i found a problem over my mail server.
A friend of mine, who has a box on my server, informed me that he does not receive any email during the evening / afternoon and therefore very late.
I tried to send me a test email and I confirm that the email is received but then ends up waiting to be scanned by the antivirus and then thrown into my mailbox.
Checking the email queue results in more than 600 waiting emails.
I found the following errors:

From /var/log/maillog :

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

Actualy i've do the same but i've not re-enable "@bypass_virus_checks_maps" and do "postqueue -f" instead "postsuper -H ALL" and appear all mail flush correctly.
I need to worry about clamav need to reinstall ? Reinit database or something ?
