I was doing the same thing last night at 11:30. Norton flagged over
100 instances of Klez on my sister-in-laws business computer. There
were at least a dozen others, including a keylogger, backdoor, and at
least 8 other trojans, but Klez was definitely the most proliferated.
Fun, ain't it?

As suggested by another poster, Clam-AV. I use it and it catches all
kinds of nasties. There is also f-prot, which you can set up as a
backup scanner through Amavisd-new.
I use Amavisd-new with postfix as my SMTP server, but if you're using
Sendmail, there may be other options you want to check out. Start
with the handbook:
particularly chapter 4, if you're not familiar with the ports, and
chapter 22 to get a good overview of the options involving email.
