ClamAV's message is in English:
Oct 26 15:07:08 MailScanner[28920]: 
ClamAVModule::INFECTED:: HTML.Phishing.Bank-1:: 

I agree that MS runs with French locale but it doesn't cause any problem 
with McAfee or Bitdefender.  Why would it act this way with ClamAV?

I looked in MS' source file but couldn't figure out why 
it didn't see that message as indicating an infection.
