So I will have to change a really well working email system without any
reason. Changing configurations wouldn't have been a problem. Removing
functionality without providing alternatives is. None of the alternative
solutions recommended by the clamav folks are in any way that simple and
easy to setup than the clamav-milter was.
Whatsoever, this is nothing debian specific so thanks a lot for helping
me. Waiting 20 months for the debian distribution to stabilize and the
first upgrade breaks the system. Should have been a dist-upgrade then.
There really is no need for debian if things are going that road now. It
were the great debian packages decoupling the distribution from any
upstream insanity I chose it for.
Btw, the clamav upgrade really brought a /etc/default/clamav-milter file
with it. This new file contains the line
and as soon as this is set to yes, clamav-milter cannot be started
anymore stating a warning that clamd may be needed and that it will be
started by clamd. clamav-milter will not be started by clamd for me.
