MIMEsweeper once bounced a plain text message back to me saying that it was
infected with a virus.
Ah... but of course, it was Outlook's idea of plain text... can Outlook
reliably be set to send genuine (which I reckon means UUencoded) plain text

Subject: [ILUG] [OT] FYI: Don't trust MIMEsweeper
Previous messages to this list indicate that some sites are using
MIMEsweeper to scan outgoing messages for viruses. I just wanted
to let everyone know that my hacked-up postfix/amavis-perl/sophos
config caught a copy of the 'Troj/Knijpme' trojan in a mail message
signed by MIMEsweeper.
| This footnote also confirms that this email message has been swept by
| MIMEsweeper for the presence of computer viruses.
