I'm in the process of sending it to sophos now, Dustin.

On a side note, I decided to sent the quarantined message as an
attachment to myself and MailScanner/Sophos caught it.  Though when I
pasted the infected bounced message in the body of a message and sent
it to myself it slipped through without being detected.  I'm wondering
if this has something to do with how the message is encoded (mime,
uuencode, etc).
