I do the following: Viruses recognized by a virus scanner
are taken away. Messages with typical attachments are taken
away, then bogofilter comes into play.
What it gets (virus related):
- Virus mails with attachment removed/replaced
- Bounces (not infective) to virus mail
- Lusers' warnings (your machine is infected)
- Viruses which are not recognized and not of typical file
