this is Sophos blocking the attachment as it couldn't scan it, so to be 
safe its saying it's infected.

In MailScanner.conf edit the setting "Allowed Sophos Error Messages" and 
make sure "Password protected file" is in the list... for example here's 
my setting for this..

Allowed Sophos Error Messages = "corrupt", "format not supported", "File 
was encrypted", "The main body of virus data is out of date", "Password 
protected file"

(All in one line, in case in gets split buy various email programs)
