It's easy to keep viruses from going out over a list by setting a
maxlength of a sufficiently small size to reject virus attachments (I have
it set to 20K which has been enough) and to have restricted posting (the
vast majority of viruses will come "from" an address which is not on your
list because "From" fields are forged by the virus).
