scratches head and tries to remember back to MailScanner 3.5...

Does 3.5 have the "Silent Viruses" and "Still Deliver Silent Viruses"
options, or are those 4.x generation stuff?

If you don't have at least the Silent Viruses option, do yourself and
everyone else a favor and upgrade ASAP or take your mailserver completely
offline until you can get a version of MS that doesn't respond to to
viruses in a broken manner.

I know the "All-Viruses" option for Silent Viruses is fairly new... But if
you at least have Silent Viruses, you can add mydoom, sco.a or whatever
your scanner calls it to the Silent Viruses list, and then set:

Still Deliver Silent Viruses = no

Which should prevent it from sending notices about the virus to anyone but
the postmaster.
