[suse-security] Anti-Virus Problem

Hi Everyone !
I am running Suse 9.0 and I have installed
qmail (netqmail Ver. 1.05)
amavis (amavis-new Ver. 20030616p5-23)
antivir (Ver 2.08-16)
Antivir seems to be an evaluation version. (The one that came with Suse 9.0)
I donwloaded the EICAR E-Mail Test Virus but when I send either an infected attachment or simply copy the virus string
on the mail, the antivirus doesn't recognize the virus, and the mail passes normally.
However when I run antivir on the infected file (attachment) by itself, it recognizes the virus. The same occured with
f-prot (however I got some minor errors while installing f-prot). When I run either anti-virus scanner on my mailbox
(mbox), none of them manage to see the virus.
Anyone has an idea what's wrong ?
