CLAMD and EXIM - anyone got it working`

Has anyone actually got CLAMD and EXIM working?

I've just had a go on a new VPS server without success. The only thing that happened was that my server slowed because clamd was hogging CPU.

I have done a lot of googling and all I found was a couple of howto's that said the same thing, and my questions from 2015 which is the last time I tried this.

I can get clamd / freshclam etc installed, although from the two howto's I worked from I had to edit / create service files and edit config files. However, I still do not manage to get a clamd.exim socket created on my system.

called directly from exim.

I use Mailscaner (<a href="https://www.mailscanner.info/" title="https://www.mailscanner.info/">https://www.mailscanner.info/</a>) - it works using two
exim queues so that one exim receives the mail and places it into a
"received" queue, Mailscanner does various things to the messages
including virus & spam scanning, then places it into the "scanned"
queue and triggers a delivery.
