Well, _my experience_ is that I get a lot of junk messages about
me sending non-sensical viruses etc. from silly anti-virus
programs, which indicates to me that there is a lot of virus
messages (I know, they are not the same as spam, but they will
produce a lot of bogus messages in your system any way) with
bogus Reply-Tos to my email. Fortunately, bogofilter is great in
eliminating this cruft, but there is a lot of it anyway.
