FreeBSD 6.1
Clamav-milter 0.88.5

I cannot seem to get the clamav-milter to work with postfix. This is the 
error message from the maillog:

Oct 21 14:23:03 scorpio postfix/smtpd[36556]: warning: connect to Milter 
service unix:/var/run/clamav/clmilter.sock: Permission denied

This is the entry in the file:

smtpd_milters = unix:/var/run/clamav/clmilter.sock
milter_default_action = accept

I changed the ownership on the /var/run/clamav directory to:


I even went as far as giving the directory a permission or: 1777.

This is from the /etc/rc.conf file:

clamav_milter_flags="-P -m 50 --quarantine-dir=/var/mail/quarantine -T 0"

I am fresh out of ideas why this is not working.
