OK, when I reboot, clamsmtpd will install it's 'PID' file in
the /var/run/clamav directory. There are no errors shown. Postfix then
immediately starts.

Now, when I receive a message, the maillog has an error message:

clamsmtpd: 100007: CLAMAV: couldn't connect to : /var/run/clamav/clamd:
No such file or directory.

Now, the file and directory do exist. If I stop or restart clamsmtpd,
that error message about "clamsmtpd: invalid OutAddress socket or ip:"
