Human intervention
Agree totally but despite the almost univesal transfer of advice - DON'T OPEN SPURIOUS EMAILS or attachments - people seem to NEED to do it anyway.  I think it is just curiosity really, they just want to SEE what happens.  I had that reaction when a fellow at Aon insurance got the old Anna Kournikovia picture virus, and he wanted to open it up JUST TO SEE what it did.

Great information
It is very important to keep the human layer engaged as another layer of defense with good security awareness training. Even best of breed email filters don't catch everything. The bad guys only need to slip through once.
