Looking at your previous message to Martin, you are doing nothing wrong
but this line is the clue:

This is the Postfix program at host

It's not your MTA that's giving the bounce with the virus attached (but
what you have done is not wasted, so don't worry!).

So that then brings the problem back to MailScanner. What have you got set
in your %rules-dir%? And also against virus scanning options in
MailScanner.conf? Just to discount anything with MailScanner generally,
feel free to forward me a copy of the bounce notice (Off list obviously!)
and I'll check it gets picked up.
