Using ClamAV to find spam

The problem with putting the logic inside MS is that it would be an ever moving target.  I believe it has already been reported that McAfee is also checking headers now, and reports when a SPAM is found.  It is great that MailWatch exists, even if you don't use the front-end as you can roll your own reports from the maillog table.  Regex away and you have your results split by virii or SPAM.  If this type of request is included * number of virus scanners being used then slow but sure MS will begin to get slower and slower when processing the mail queue.

IMHO lets leave MS to do what it it does well, and let us create the fancy reports :)
