Clamav scanning outgoing, but not incoming mail

I have installed clamav on my Fedora Core 1 machine both by building the software from source and then later by installing rpms. In both cases, it correctly scans mail going out from the server, but completely fails to stop infected messages (eicar test file attached) from an outside server from being delivered to a user mail box.

I'm using clamd and clamav-milter 0.70rc

current flags on clamav-milter, from /etc/sysconfig/clamav-milter are :

CLAMAV_FLAGS="--max-children=10 --bounce --force-scan --dont-log-clean local:/var/run/clamav/clamav-milter.sock"

I've tried running clamd and clamav-milter as both the clamav user and as root with the same results. I have also tried running clamd with both the local socket file /var/run/clamav/clamd.sock and the TCP socket method. I get the same results every way I try it. Incoming messages not scanned, but outgoing are.

If anyone has run into this problem, or can even ask me some questions that might get me to think of something I'm just not seeing, I would greatly appreciate it.
