Not scanning zip/rar files

Ive just moved my mailscanner from a test box onto what will be our
production mailscanner box.  I copied all the conf files over so there
*shouldn't* be any difference in the config.  It seems now that
Mailscanner is not scanning zip or rar files.  I sent a test eicar.txt
and that got caught, but if I put it inside a rar or a zip it goes
straight through.  Can anyone tell me what is a good place to start
looking for something Im sure to have missed?
