Amavisd-new: Interface to Sendmail milter + ClamAV

I was done installing sendmail (latest) and ClamAV +Spamassassin. During testing, clamav and spamassassin works better and detect virus and block spam.

Now I thought that it would be better to run multiple Anti-Virus Scanner on a Mail Server using amavisd-new. So I decide to use amavisd-new and it was my first time to use.

I got so many doubts / confuse on my mind about amavisd-new on how it works to interface it on my sendmail. I want to test even only ClamAV (for my av scanner) if amavisd-new will work.. But I was disappointed. I have try reading howtos on and still I'm confused how to work amavisd-new on sendmail.

I was thought if amavisd-new uses any socket and do i need to put any code on in order to call the amavisd-new when sendmail running? Like on ClamAV it uses clamav-milter.sock to communicate it on Sendmail. This is a sample code on

INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`clmilter',`S=local:/var/run/clamav/clamav-milter.sock, F=, T
define(`confINPUT_MAIL_FILTERS', `clmilter')

I hope anyone could help me so that as soon as possible, i can able to run multiple AV Scanner and my mind will no longer getting confuse.

best regards
