Don't panic, Stephen is following the mailing lists, and it's probably rather
me to blame for several milter-upgrade problems.

Would you maybe first let us know which version you are using?

outgoing, local, external is done by default.

> --quarantine-dir=/var/spool/quarantine --dont-wait
> --template-file=/root/clamav-notify-template
> --postmaster=some at email.address --from
For all the others there is no option for configuring this anymore.

We don't ship a defaults file for clamav-milter anymore in any of the 0.95*
versions - that must be some relict from an ealier version.

Well, to me it seems current milter does not yet support all the stuff you would
like to see. Well, to me it seems only the notifications don't work the same way
anymore. As an admin, for now, you can only check the logfiles.
