> btw, Drew, did you received my email?  Do your MailScanner intercept it?

Yes, I received it and replied. Your attachment (The zip file) was corrupt
an therefore not a virus (Although probably was once). I would suspect
that as your secondary mx is running Postfix, they have left the default
bounce message length setting in place, which in turn has truncated the
attachment and rendered it useless. Although it will have retained the
original file attributes, it hasn't retained the file's contents.

It came through my gateway without problem but I couldn't unpack the
attachment, hence why none of my AV detected it.


PS Glad it's storted!
