If you want to virus scan first, run a milter. That way you can drop it at the 
smtp phase.
Personally, I have had false positives with the sane sigs, but it has been 
when they posted a bad signature, and they fixed it quickly.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
