I would not currently recommend clamav-milter for production systems 
without a lot of testing.  The version in Intrepid (clamav 0.94.2) is 
sufficiently problemtic that upstream did a complete rewrite for 0.95 (in 
Jaunty).  Clamav 0.95.1, that I'm working on getting into Jaunty before 
release, has a large number of clamav-milter bug fixes (no great suprise 
for the first release after a complete rewrite).
