On several occasions, ZoneAlarm has caught a virus that ClamAV missed during mail scanning. I am not sure why though. From what I could gather, the ClamAV signatures had not caught up to the new virus. I reload the Clamav signatures every 4 hours. The ZoneAlarm signatures are done once a day, however.
