Long time no check

Thanks much for the post, but that is not quite what I am looking for. I
want to be able to scan ALL e-mail for spam, and only certain domains for
viruses. As I understand the docs, using the method below will turn off
ALL message processing for the domains in question, not just the virus
scanning but also the spam scanning.
