Just a little thought, Im not a big fan of hotmail but I know they use 
mcafee to scan for viruses. I dont have a clue if they scan outgoing mail
but I would hope they do

Ämne: F-PROT problem?

I have RedHat 7.1, Sendmail8.9.3, MailScanner 4.04-1 and f-prot 3.12b.
Everything its seems to be working ok, but if I send a message from an
external account (hotmail) with a virus attached, I have no warning about an
infected message. I tried the EICAR_test file too, but nothing happened, I
just get these lines in maillog:
Nov  6 17:34:11 ns0 sendmail[5914]: RAA05914: from=< user at

I tested f-prot manually and it says the infection is there (EICAR_test and
an infected file (Magistr). I really apreciate your help to solve this
BTW, I got warned about some infected messages, but they are the ones with
IFrame tags in it. 
Thanks in advance
