The thread "Clamav for old kolabd-1.9.4" on this list shows two ways:

- following the instructions in the kolab wiki.

An alternative way is to install a new clamav in your base system
and change amavisd.conf.template (I did not test this!):
Change /kolab/var/clamav/clamd.sock to /var/run/clamd.sock
