Enabling use of ClamAV Daemon

Warnings

Note that ClamAV will "fail safe" if the "clamd" daemon is not running. So your messages will not be scanned for viruses if it has died or is otherwise not running. This is why the default for vPostMaster is to use the stand-alone "clamscan" instead of "clamdscan". However, this does result in a loss of performance.
