The latest Bagle viruses include zip files which are password protected
- The mail body includes the password so that uninformed users will use
this to open the zip, and thus propagate the virus.
Anti-Virus products cannot open the zip due to the fact that it is
password protected (this is the reason behind the password protection).
Might be worth telling your users to not open any zip files that require
a password - Most likely this will be bagle.

Im having similar problems, except with exiscan and exim. You can find
more info here:
There is more discussion on the subject in the clamav-user archives, and
I would guess the amavis archives too.
