Why be so nice to external senders?  If they send you a virus infected
message how is that different than an internal virus sender?

Yes, I think you see what I mean.  I guess it wouldn't be so bad to
notify external senders if I edited the file ""
to be more apologetic.  I can see how it would be nice to have different
notifications for local senders and external senders.  I could read the
riot act to the local senders and apologize to the external senders!
