I have placed it above
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp, Name=MTA')dnl
rebuilt sendmail.cf and restarted sendmail, no errors in maillog

Sent myself a clean email from gmail and got
X-Virus-Scanned: clamd / ClamAV version 0.71, clamav-milter version 0.71
X-Virus-Status: Clean
in the header (same as before)

Sent myself clean and dirty emails from within the server, no clamav
headers. I think that is a matter of expectation-alignment, probably
mail that does not come in from the outside world is not being
clamaved. So I guess I will have to wait for a real virus, I doubt
gmail would appreciate me being a virus mailer even if it is only to

So I guess 2 questions remain:
1. How do I know if viruses are indeed been blocked? (can't find an
appropriate log file)
2. How do I know my definitions are being kept up-to-date with no
apparent freshclam?
