Question About /etc/clamd.d/amavisd.conf

I don’t know if this file comes from clam or amavis-new, but….

It contains the comment and command:

# Run as a selected user (clamd must be started by root)
User amavis

Is this conf file for clam or amavis?

As in /etc/clamd.conf we have:

# Run as another user (clamd must be started by root for this option to work)
# Default: don’t drop privileges User clam

# Initialize supplementary group access (clamd must be started by root).
# Default: no AllowSupplementaryGroups yes

Then in /etc/amavisd.conf (the real? conf file for amavis-new) in the Clamav section are comments:

# # Note: run clamd under the same user as amavisd, or run it under its own
# # uid such as clamav, add user clamav to the amavis group, and then add
# # AllowSupplementaryGroups to clamd.conf;

So is clam running under its user or amavis? Why is this last comment pointing to the ‘old’ clamav userid?
