Viruses apparently getting through

I seeing a lot of e-mails getting through that are caught by 
ZoneAlarm Security Suite and reported to be infected by the 
Win32.Sober.W!.ZIP virus. These are coming in as attachments with the 
extension .zm9 as reported by ZoneAlarm.

I am running the following on FreeBSD 4.10

MailScanner 4.32.4
ClamAV 0.87.1/1200

I've added a file types rule to deny \.zm9$ files

I'm still getting them in e-mail though.

Any thoughts?
