The ClamAV scanning feature can be disabled in the qmail’s simcontrol configuration file. This will not disable the clamav daemon but will disable active scanning.

edit: /var/qmail/control/simcontrol

there should be text like this:


what we need to do is to replace clam=yes with clam=no. If you don’t have this text insert it.

Next we need to run /var/qmail/bin/simscanmk to rebuild the changed configuration.
