i use clamav for mail virus checking and IMHO it is the only place where 
realtime virus checking make sense.

some windows users have NOD32 antivirus and i never got a case that NOD32 
detected email virus after clamav filter.

Of course this is all windows only problem, unix doesn't have viruses.
