Ok, having placed the last of the filters in place, I'm now confident
that the sobig.f virus has been conquered on ht mailserver.
(Of course the server was never infected, but the open list was
propagating the thing.)

For those that are interested, an mrtg graph of the server shows 
just how quickly the virus spread and was hitting the server.

Note that the bandwidth went from an average of <50kbps to a 
consistent >750kbps. On the left side of the graph you can see that
the filters have knocked things back down to almost normal.
