Filename whitelist virus problem

I have setup a whitelist to allow .zip and .com messages through to only
one user.  My understanding is that it should still scan for viruses but
when I send the eicar test zip file with the .com zipped inside it just
sends it through and doesn't scan it for viruses.

Can anyone maybe help me?
