Yep. Unfortunatly thats very true. We had problems with this as well. Please note though that the mail itself does not contain the Trojan. It is a Phishing-Style mail that requests the user to open a link. If you do in IE the webpage uses some "old" IE vulnerabilities to download the trojan in the background. Local virus scanners detect that vulnerability (Microsoft VM problem), at least eTrust did here. 

So technically it is "ok" for the other virus scanners not to detect this, since it is "only" a mail message....
