At least for me, I am using some anti-virus and anti-spam utilities on
my local server, but the issue is that you first have to download the
150kB to find out it's a virus. and I also noticed the last day 20-30 of
such emails, leading to some Mb to download for nothing... except the
money for the online time (have no flatrate).
So it's really an issue (at least for me) as this costs me money !
