Of course, this will also block legitimate messages that have been
scanned by whatever type of virus scanner adds that header.

Wietse suggests the following body check; it will work better with
Postfix 2.0:
http://sbserv.stahl.bau.tu-bs.de/~hildeb/postfix/postfix_sobigf.shtml

This is working well for us.

You could also probably look for the following three lines in a row:

(I'll indent a space so they don't set off people who are blocking based
on the above rules):

 X-MailScanner: Found to be clean
 Importance: Normal
 X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2600.0000

We're seeing a LOT of these today.... probably in the thousands per
second.
