Also i believe some of the bounces are comming back with the whole bounce
msg including virus set in a plain text mime type. All the clients i use
dont therefore allow me to save off the infected attachment. NOT SURE WHAT
OUTLOOK DOES ON THESE.
My INBOX is becoming spammed silly with these reject Messages with a copy of
the virus attached in MIME format. Question is should MailScanner be able to
break up the msg and find these bounces and filter them out as well ?
Anyone care to comment ?
