How can I configure Warden so that mail is still accepted when the ClamAV daemon is down?

If you want your users to still be able to send and receive email when the Anti-virus service is down:

  1. Under Warden -> Settings -> AV Milter Settings -> Actions -> Change the On fail option to Accept.
  2. Press the restart button to restart the ClamAV milter.

Now email will still be accepted even when ClamAV is having problems (Although it will not be scanned for viruses).
