I'm not Jeff, but I'm also using ClamAV & hMailServer (successfully), so 
hopefully the configs below will be of use. I'm assuming that you've made it 
as far as running ClamAV as a service. If not you'll want to review the 
archives from the last week or so. Note that if you're running 0.920, you 
might want to download it again to make sure you have the newest build. The 
1st release of didn't give exit codes to the caller (hMailServer) even 
though the detection was recorded by clamd.log.
