I work for an ISP that receives over 2 million emails a day.  I can 
promise that I could give a rats ass about reading any customer 
email...I can hardly keep up with reading my own.

As far as virus scanning, it is almost required for ISP's to do it now 
as infected customers become a strain on network resources.  Just image 
10,000 customers spewing virus spam via your smtp gateways as fast as 
they can handle it, and then having to deal with a couple of million 
bounce messages.
