You might want it to filter email on a mail server so messages don't get
read by users on machines where they are more likely to be a problem.
If you aren't running a mail server and are asking about desktop use,
then no you don't want to use a virus scanner.
SELinux (along with better designed apps) is a better approach to dealing
with that kind of malware.
