I have run your sample message through my MailScanner and it successfully
spotted and removed the MyDoom-A virus from it. It reported it twice, but
that is a known quirk of Sophos with this virus.

Please check that your MIME-tools is properly patched with the 4 security
patches. There is nothing special about the MailScanner setup on my devel
