Viruses flagged as spam too

Hi All,

I've had a dig through the archives, but didn't turn up anything  
definitive (maybe I need more coffee?).  However, I'll ask the  
question anyway: is there any way to prevent messages detected as  
viruses from also being scanned for spam?  Given that SpamAssassin is  
the biggest bottle-neck in the process, it seems pointless to scan  
messages that (in my set-up) are never delivered.

I see a big, nasty fly in the ointment though; MailScanner's batch  
processing paradigm.  How can we rip individual messages out of a  
batch, once the batch has started processing??

Any takers?
