This matches the start of a base64-encoded PE executable.  I have no
desire to every receive them by email.  Despite the varying headers,
every(?) worm to date has contained this in the body.

Also, to catch stupid bounce messages:

* Subject:.*(Thank you!|(My|Your|re:) (application|details)|That movie|Virus|delivery fail|blocked attachment|delivery notification|returned mail|Prohibited|delivery status notification|undeliver(ed|able)|wicked screensaver|re: approved|report to sender)

I then set up logrotate to roll over the log file and virus mailbox
every week or so.

An elitist receives their mail through a shell box where they can run
server-side procmail or spamassassin filtering.
