    Ever since last week, I've been receiving these emails every 5 - 10 minutes. The amount of email is just ... nuts.

    clamav failed @ Wed Jun 11 08:51:42 2008. A restart was attempted automagically.

    When I log into Mailscanner Front End, I see: A new version of ClamAV (Current:v0.91.2 New:v0.93.1) is available

    But when I try to perform the upgrade, I get this error:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

    Me too. Ever since I used the WHM interface "Manage Plugins" to uninstall ClamavConnector, I get two emails every 10 minutes now:

    clamd on [servername] failed
    mysql on [servername] failed

    The numver of BS emails are driving me nutz. If I reinstall clamavconnector then the emails stop but then I have to deal with all the problems and server load that it creates.

    Did you try to update your clamav manually?
    Looking at the logs it seems clamav is stalled or unable to start.
    Try manually starting clamav and see what the system logs are saying.
