Hello, I have a problem with clamd not being able to scan mail properly.
In the amavis log there are messages like:

run_av (ClamAV-clamd) result:
/var/amavis/tmp/amavis-20190518T065844-01954-dOjV4CBP/parts: lstat()
failed: Permission denied.
ERROR\n/var/amavis/tmp/amavis-20190518T065844-01954-dOjV4CBP/parts: OK\n
run_av (ClamAV-clamd): CLEAN
run_av (ClamAV-clamd) result: clean

So it passes everything as CLEAN, even the EICAR test virus.
It seems to be a permissions issue.
I used this article to check my settings,
but everything seems to be correct.

Thanks, Alexander.
