Aaaarrrrggggghhhh!!! At the risk of starting a  
flame-fest, do yourself a favour, ignore this  
advice and stay away from qmail. The license  
issue alone should make you stop and think  
first. It is about as encumbered with  
restrictions as it is possible to be with a  
so-called "free" license.  
After that, you have to start patching the  
source and rebuilding everything from scratch in  
order to make it actually useful. It is hideous.  
No one can supply you a binary or even  
pre-patched sources despite such patches having  
been extensively tested and mature. Don't expect  
to be able to add any kind of plug-ins either.  
There are plenty of MTAs out there which I would  
use ahead of qmail, especially if you're already  
using sendmail, and as other posters have  
pointed out, there are tools that work with  
sendmail as it is, so there's no need to scrap  
your MTA just to get clamav integration.
