This is not a good regex task - it isn't strictly pattern matching, it's a counting job, which regex is pretty bad at.
While you can do it it would be horribly complex, and if you decided at a later date that you wanted to include special characters in there it would be a real PITA to maintain.

Instead, do it in code: Use two regexes - one to return all the digits, and one to return all the alpha characters. You then check that the length of both is greater than zero.
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
