Hmm, I suspect there's your setting... when MailScanner quarantines the
whole message, there's no message to the recipient left.

Normally, MS just yanks the infected attachment, and adds the warning, and
sends the message along.

Someone more knowledgable than me can possibly step in and correct me, but
I don't think there's a setting that changes this. It's almost like you'd
need a "notify recipients of quarantined messages" option.

However, that seems a bit silly.. if you're going to notify them, why
quarantine the whole message? Why not just quarantine the dangerous parts
and let the rest through?
