  • Just as a little note, generally it's not just the virusscanner that sends out the spam and such. It can also be the mailserver. Yes, really ;) Actually it's more or less the combo of two. Virusscanners are not mailservers etc, but do need to get along and work with eachother. A general setup seems something like 'mailserver parsing mail to virusscanner before anything else'. The virusscanner then reports back 'hey, this has a virus' and depending on settings it'll remove the virus and put a note in it. The mailserver then sends out the mail anyway, cause hey, it's clean now right? The best setup would ofcourse be "DELETE THE FREAKING E-MAIL AND BE DONE WITH IT!" This is possible. I do it. I don't want virusses anywhere on my system and I sure as hell will refuse to send one back. (ok ok, getting carried away, it's my job, really I get so many complaints from people going ' I did not send this mail, why does it bounce back to me? ' cause so many postmasters still bounce virusmails and *refuse* to change that)
