    I do this but notify now not sending to the virus sender, not sending to the administrator, but sending to the email adress that the wirus was send :(

    What i must do to email with the virus was delete by the mailscanner and notify about virus in the mail to me not send to me ???

    Thanx :)

    Mailscanner will delier the message to the intended recipient, but the actual virus will be stripped out of it first.

    If there is a way for mailscanner to completely discard the message, I do not know what it is.

    This:

    means:

    I do not think Mailscanner can do that.

    I think this is what you want In the mailscanner.conf

    # Do you want to deliver messages once they have been cleaned of any
    # viruses?
    # By making this a ruleset, you can re-create the "Deliver From Local"
    # facility of previous versions.
    Deliver Cleaned Messages = yes


    Change that to No

    Interesting! I had never noticed that before. I wonder what happens to the message. Does it just go away?

    I like that in times like this when we are innundated with spam, but I am not so sure during normal, lower threat times.
