One more thing to report...

When the message contains a blocked file type within a zipfile the
sender, recipient and postmaster get notified. (Okay)

When the message contains an encrypted zip the recipient gets a warning,
but neither sender nor postmaster get alerted.  (Not Okay).

Presumably this would vary according to the various Notify and Notices
options, but personally I would like to see the same behaviour in both
cases (since this is a policy decision not an actual found virus).

For reference I'm running with all notifications on except notify
senders of viruses.
