As I mentioned, the file I sent *was* zipped. The title of the file was
"ChangeVBSBehavior.zip", so apparently *any* instance of the letters "vbs"
is triggering these virus scanners.

While it may bother certain people, I personally think bouncing is great
because it informs the sender of the error of there ways. Also, there
are ways around this as we all know, IE , change the extension or zip
it! So if its an important file, and to save all of us time in receiving
it, compress it and then send it...
Just my .02 cents ....

I would just like to point out that "working very well" is a relative
assessment, and furthermore is not neccessarily shared by the moderator
this list :P
C'mon people, we all know that there are better solutions than bouncing
every VBS attachment and emailing the sender.
