[clug] postfix + clamav-milter

Hi All,

I'm trying to setup postfix + clamav-milter on a server (i'm not allowed 
to install MailScanner, etc and Amavis errors badly when trying to 
install - Debian).

I've followed instructions online, and have added this to the bottom of 
the postfix config file:
smtpd_milters = unix:/clamav/clamav-milter
milter_default_action = accept

(the milter program is running, and that socket is correct (from a 
chroot perspective of postfix), when I had it incorrect I could see the 
errors from postfix.

Long story short, test infections slip through, and i'm looking to start 
testing to see whether the milter setup isn't working, or if postfix 
isn't configured correctly.  Any suggestions  as to how I can test the 
socket/milter program to make sure it is scanning correctly?
