    Hi,

    It was recently suggested to me that with the volume of viruses employing spoof addresses, that I stop my mailscanner sending the warning to the sender, when it receives a virus.

    Any thoughts on this?

    And is there an easy way to do it?

    Cheers

    In /usr/mailscanner/etc/MailScanner.conf, find the lines like below and set Notify Sender=no

    # Do you want to notify the people who sent you messages containing
    # viruses or badly-named filenames?
    # This can also be the filename of a ruleset.
    Notify Senders = no

    It was a different file location, but I found it!

    Many thanks! It should also reduce my mail queue!

    Yeah -- I did the same when I saw that my queue was filling up with reject notices to non-existant addresses used by virus senders.

    And the legitimate addresses usually weren't the senders anyway.
