Viruses and worms that spread as mail attachments are filling our 
inboxes day for day. Most of this nastly little monsters are able to 
generate random or faked from addresses.

I receive dozents of automaticly generated notification mails that 
presume I sent a not allowed attachment. 

What amazes me is that none of that crap gets flagged as spam!

I'd have thought it would be fairly easy for a bayesian filter to
spot.

And it *is* spam. Both unsolicited and commercial; they are advertising
their product.
