Okay, after waiting overnight I finally got one come in, this is the report now...

  Report: SophosSAVI: was infected by W32/Mimail-C
            ClamAV: contains dangerous broken zip file

Which is all very well, but I also saw this cause a genuine (non-infected) zip to get blocked.  Considering that clamscan does pick the Mimail virus up (just that MailScanner doesn't seem able to spot it in Clam's output) there must surely be a better solution(?).
