Reluctantly, I am forced to agree WRT incoming detections.  Using that 
procmail recipe I sent earlier today, the date on 
my /var/spool/mail/virii file is Mar 31st, and its now the last week of 
May.  Several have been identified as they sail thru my spam tree, but 
they got there by getting past that procmail recipe.
