Ya, but I would clarify it to say {SPAM Scanned}.  This is very handy if
you recently added a domain to your service by changing a DNS MX record.
As you know, it takes other DNS server some time before they update their
MX recrods.  This way, you can easily tell what messages have been scanned
and which have not.  After a while, this would be removed.

by actually scanning every message, but then using rulesets to control what
happens when a virus is found (e.g. deliver it anyway).

Server load is not a worry, but how would you go about doing this?  That is
what I can't figure out?
