We've just had a 4 different users report that they received a virus in an email
attachment (Klez-H, Sircam).   Their desktop Sophos picked it up when they
opened the email, but it appears that MailScanner/Sophos missed it.   We're
currently using MailScanner 4.11-1 with Sophos 368.    It's also odd that the
number of viruses caught yesterday was down to half of  the past week's
average.  Our Sophos ides are updated hourly and that's working fine.
We ran the eicar virus test  against sophos-wrapper and it appeared to catch
Has anyone else had a similar problem,  or is this just another reason to
upgrade to the latest version of MailScanner and Sophos?
