I do not have anything in /var/run/clamav and that is the location in 
clamd.conf for placing the PID file. I cannot connect to the localhost as 

esmtp# telnet localhost 3310
Trying ::1...
telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
telnet: connect to address Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host

However, according to the clamd.log, clamav is intercepting viruses. Do you 
think it is working and why would I not be able to connect via telnet or 
view the pid file if it is?
