Its simply the load on the boxes, MS is our filtering, we have 15-20 mbit
mail sustained, at peak times, so its no real surprise we get high number
on busted virusses, thats what we have MS for :)

Its behind a load balancer, and some simple firewall rules, but i'd rather
filter them with MS then some fw rule. Our experience is that is far more
