Using ClamAV to find spam

Hi list,

I've enabled the "ClamAV Full Message Scan" option and installed the 
sanesecurity sigs. Clam is nicely finding loads (and loads... and 
loads...!) of spam, but of course is causing all these messages to be 
tagged as Virused. This is  making my MailWatch screen a sea of red and 
skewing the stats such that I appear to be receiving loads of viruses 
instead of spam.

Is it possible to get MailScanner to look at the report from ClamAV and 
determine if the message is really spam rather than virused ?
