Use fetchmail and gotmail to collect from yahoo and hotmain respectivly, then you can check for viruses using mailscanner.  This is what I do and it works rather nicely, although ive not had any viruses from yahoo/hotmail yet :-)
And off the top of my head I beleive mailscanner does scan mail that arrive by this method !

All emails that pass through this server are being scanned
for Viruses, dangerous content and suspect files/names.
This email appears to be clean and has passed through the
Virus scanner successfully.
