I’ve been trying to set up my mailserver in a way which blocks virii. That worked reasonably well by blocking executable attachments except for those pesky NetSky-variants that come inside ZIP-archives (which some idiots obviously do open).
In any case, I’ve now installed a proper virus scanner (AntiVir MailGate which is free for personal use in all its variants). It’s easy enough to set up (as long as you can read instructions ;)) and seems to work well.
The net effect of all this is that I have reduced my daily email traffic from about 10meg to approximately 1meg. If your mail is among the 9meg that got left out, I must have misconfigured something… 😛
