"Exploit-MIME.gen" does not sound like a virus, but like some exploit
based on broken MIME-handling in some clients (MS Outlook / Outlook
Express comes to mind ...). So quite probably sime code to handle
MIME-attachments (to scan, strip, etc.) has triggered a false alert.

Perhaps you'd like to check what the documentation of your scanner can
tell you about "Exploit-MIME.gen".
