Enabling this setting isn't only beneficial for ClamAV, but also for
McAfee ... Note the McAfee line in this report snippet:
   Subject: You've received a postcard from a Friend!
 MessageID: D6DC4E452.39523
Quarantine: /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/20070801/D6DC4E452.39523
    Report: ClamAV Module:  message was infected: Email.Phishing.RB-1221
            McAfee: /D6DC4E452.39523.message        Found the
W32/Zhelatin.gen!eml virus !!!
As you can see, it isn't just ClamAV phishing signatures triggering on
the "complete message" file... Pretty cool side effect:-).

Perhaps makes the name ... less than intuitive:-):-). But since I'll
want this and always use ClamAV, it's OK by me... Otherwise it'd have
to be "Antivirus Full Message Scan" or something similar:-).
