amavisd-new, redhat linux 9, sendmail and AVG virus scanner
Posted on 2004-03-27
I have installed the AVG virus scanner daemon on Redhat Linux 9, hooked up Dazuko, and also (I think) configured amavisd-new so that it uses the AVG scanner (when I run the amavisd-new daemon in debug mode it apparently starts up fine and conencts it to the avg scanner).
However, I'm now having trouble hooking amavisd-new up to sendmail. amavisd. I added the following lines to sendmail.mc and regenerated sendmail.cf
dnl Change Mlocal to use AMaViS-Perl
define(`AMAVIS_LOCAL_MAILER_ARGS', `-d $u')
define(`LOCAL_MAILER_ARGS',`amavis $f $u' LOCAL_MAILER_PATH AMAVIS_LOCAL_MAILER_ARGS)dnl
dnl please set the path to your procmail accordingly!
dnl the following works only with sendmail 8.10.x or above
I then restarted sendmail, and sent myself a test message. This got bounced with an error 255. The error log shows the following

So what am I doing wrong here?
