Virus-carrying spam

I don't agree that they are the same issue.  Viruses are staring to use
spam techniques but they are still separate issues. A spam messages
won't delete files but a virus will.  That account that is receiving a
klez it is not receiving spam, it is receiving a virus.

Just my two pence worth.

In case nobody noticed yet, I'd like to bring to your attention that
spam and viruses are no longer separate issues.  One of my accounts has
been consistently receiving spam that carries the Klez virus for the
last week.

Mailscanner seems to stop it fine, but it is a disturbing new
development and I thought it should be mentioned.
