I sent one of those Microsoft Gibe infected messages through.  It
triggered ClamAV, Trend, F-Prot, and MailScanner's Iframe exploit...all
the lights went on!

I think it's working correctly.  I just didn't understand what I was
looking at.  On the detail graph it shows the legend for both the blue and
yellow lines.  The blue says "Infected Mail 4" and the yellow says
"Viruses Detected 1".

Perhaps the blue legend might be changed to something like "Errors
Recorded 4" since there really was only one infected piece of mail???
