On my externally-facing MTA (postfix), incoming email is scanned for the 
following pattern and rejected with a 550 code if it matches. 


Now I don't know if there have been any false positives, but I don't think
so. No-one has complained and the check only causes rejected emails when 
there are viruses active. 

I think there have been zero false negatives, but once again, I'm not 100% 
sure about this.
