Scanning an Exchange server for a virus that spreads via email? What could go wrong?

Sweet memories...

I remember well when ILOVEYOU broke out on our university campus. It was that morning when I found an e-mail in my inbox with this love confession from a girl in administration. As sweet as she was, I had some mixed feelings about this - can't remember her name since we cruelly only called her The Nose. For obvious reason. Needless to say, our love relationship wasn't meant to last. Not longer than a few seconds anyway.

I was safe with my Linux environment. And the next thing was to start up the Windows sandbox - no virtual machine at that time - and investigate what this charming virus actually did.
