I thought I had it bad.  I'm up to 414 viruses at about 62 megs this 
month (doesn't count some new "screensaver.exe" that started this week, 
filesize=33K).  Luckily my ISP has a web mail interface now.  I just go 
on there, scan the headers (w/sizes) and delete and purge all viruses 
and SPAM, then go into Mozilla mail and get the good email.  It has 
lowered my email DL time from about 2-4 hours a day to about 30 mins.

Since I'm in eCS-OS/2, BeOS or Linux 99% of the time and never go online 
in Win anything it is only the aggravation of wasted time & bandwidth 
that worries me per the viruses.
