Subject Line control (SPAM CONTROL)

I've been using spam-assassin,, along with
mailscanner. Spam-assassin catches about 95% of the spam sent to the company
I work for, up significantly from what mailscanner can catch, but it doesn't
do virus scanning so I have to use both products on my mail gateway. I would
love to see these to products combined into one. I may have a chance to
start some work in that direction in the comming days, but if someone else
would like to look at this, that would be great.
