V4 and viruses to delete

Thanks.  I was just trying to reduce the amount of typing in
mailscanner.conf between revs.  I had tried this earlier and it doesn't
seem to work which was why I asked.  What happens is that it never
deletes the df/qf files from queue and gets stuck in a loop. It sends
the postmaster warning and does remain silent for the sender but since
it's still in queue it gets processed over and over.

I assume you're talking about the "Silent Viruses" option.

You can just give it a space-separated list of virus names, like this:
Silent Viruses = Klez Yaha-E

If you want to give it the filename of a ruleset, then that file could
contain something like
To      *@domain1.com   Yaha-E
To      *@domain2.com   Klez Sircam-A

This is one of the keywords that I couldn't really think why you might
want to use a ruleset, but didn't see any good reason to stop you if you
wanted to. If you can tell me what you are trying to achieve, that would
help me produce a better example for you.
