Agreed. I actually have people on my blocklist because their virus protection continues to send me alerts that I "may have a virus on my system" If you're going to send notification, there is only one _proper_ way to do it: analyze the Received: headers and find out where the virus _really_ originated, then contact the abuse@ address for that domain with the message. Despite how easy this is to do, it doesn't seem like a lot of AV packages bother with it ... -- Bill Moran Potential Technologies http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
