This thread caused an idea to pop into my head. What if virus scanners
would digitally sign outgoing messages as virus free such that incoming
mail handlers could verify the message+signatures and not have to scan
for virii? Then active lists like fedora-list could scan once at the
server and all the recipients would only have to check the signature.
