Random spam mail stuck in queue

Not a big deal because I've written a script to track them down but,
after several months of no problems, my inbound mail queue got clogged
up with the message below.

It keeps getting scanned again and again.  Eats up loads of CPU.

Running Exim 4.60 with MailScanner 4.84.3

Below is the start of the message.  It's a tax refund spam with a
"refund form" attached.

Anyone else had this problem?
