    Default Turning off anti-spam breaks anti-virus and mail delivery

    I want to use anti-virus, but not the anti-spam service.

    In Configuration on the admin page...

    In "Global Settings" -> "AS/AV" I have "Enable spam checking and antivirus" checked.

    In Servers -> myServer -> Services I have Anti-Virus checked and Anti-Spam unchecked.

    In this configuration, it appears that amavisd doesn't run, an so mail gets hung up in the queue as shown below.

    Mar 4 13:52:24 xxxxx postfix/smtpd[12097]: initializing the server-side TLS engine
    Mar 4 13:52:24 xxxxx postfix/smtpd[12097]: connect from xxx.xxx.xxx[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]
    Mar 4 13:52:24 xxxxx postfix/smtpd[12097]: 40B3B8A1D9: client=xxx.xxx.xxx[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]
    Mar 4 13:52:24 postman postfix/cleanup[12107]: 40B3B8A1D9: message-id=<D1B52C95-A41E-4C13-B753-AF560FE3BD9C@xxx.xxx>
    Mar 4 13:52:24 xxx postfix/qmgr[11443]: 40B3B8A1D9: from=<x@xxx.xxx>, size=3034, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
    Mar 4 13:52:24 xxxxx postfix/smtpd[12097]: disconnect from xxx.xxx.xxx[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]
    Mar 4 13:52:24 xxxxx postfix/smtp[12115]: connect to 127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]: Connection refused (port 10024)
    Mar 4 13:52:24 xxxxx postfix/smtp[12115]: 40B3B8A1D9: to=<xxxxx@xxxxx.xxx>, relay=none, delay=0, status=deferred (connect to 127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]: Connection refused)

    zmcontrol status returns

    antivirus Stopped
    zmamavisdctl is not running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Running
    mta Running
    snmp Running
    spell Running


    If I enable Anti-Spam in the server settings, mail starts flowing through the system again and zmcontrol status returns

    antispam Running
    antivirus Running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Running
    mta Running
    snmp Running
    spell Running


    So it looks like something is broken where if Anti-Spam is turned off, the Anti-Virus stuff doesn't start correctly.

    I see this with 4.0.4_GA and 4.5.2_GA running under FC4.

    Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?
