Many viruses use a wide range of subjects and have a set of message 
body primitives prepared, so they can cheat message filtering.

In order to check the virus sample, you could use web forms or 
automated e-mail addresses:

Kaspersky Labs e-mail robot for samples (fastest to react):

Trend Micro Web form:

McAfee (NAI) e-mail at

CA (InoculateIT) web sample submit form:

If you submit a file and it is an already known malware, the form / auto-
reply will tell you about it immediately. If the sample is new, the AV 
guys will process it and send you a reply ASAP. (Average 1,5-4 hours, 
maybe a little more at weekends).

This way you don't spam the mailing list and get a rapid response 7x24.
