Absolutely not.  My spam filters are handling the original spam fine but I am

For those that use spamassassin, in ~/.spamassassin/user_prefs:

header VIRUS_BOUNCE             X-MailScanner =~ /Found to be clean/
describe VIRUS_BOUNCE           Has X-MailScanner with virus signature.
score VIRUS_BOUNCE              5.0
