I use f-secure as well as clamav on my mail gateways.  If one doesn’t get it the other may.  I also use Sophos internally, so the files have been scanned three times by the time the user sees them.
I also disallow password protected archives, but have a rule file to allow trusted sites to protect a zip file for the few exceptions.

clamav is pretty good, but i am still seeing quite a few trojan attachments (in .zip) getting thru.  is there another recommended alternative to use with/inlieu of clamav?
