I have a problem with clamav-milter / sendmail  

I am working on red hat enterprise 3 ,

sendmail running

clamav 0.93 installed,

also clamav-milter

clamd is running,

clumscan is working

freshclam is working fine  

clamav-milter start

produces following output:  

Your LANG environment variable is set to 'de_DE.UTF-8'

This is known to cause problems for some clamav-milter installations.

If you get failures with temporary files, please try again with LANG unset.

LibClamAV Error: cl_cvdhead: Can't read CVD header in /var/clamav/

Loaded ClamAV version 0.93, clamav-milter version 0.93

ClamAV: Protecting against 309230 viruses    

I have following problem:  

I add  

INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`clamav',`S=local:/var/run/clamav/clmilter.sock,F=, T=S:4m;R:4m;C:30s:E:10m')dnl

define(`confINPUT_MAIL_FILTERS', `clamav')dnl  


and i rebuild sendmail.cfg  

m4 /etc/mail/ > /etc/mail/  

then i restart sendmail  

all is workin fine (no errors)  

BUT I do not get any mails  

My maillog (example)  

Jun 8 00:26:59 myserver sendmail[1585]: ruleset=check_relay, arg1=[], arg2=, relay=[], reject=553 5.3.0 Rejected - see
