Julian, I'd revise that list. Really all he needs to disable is 62 to
get mail from you. The others might hit mail from this list quoting spam
reports, but some won't even do that. One doesn't even look to be
MailScanner related at all.
#This looks for a virus-scanning tool name in the From, including
MailScanner (ie: Julian's mail)
score VIRUS_WARNING62 0
#These are body rules and might hit posts on this list with people
quoting output from their MailScanner.
score VIRUS_WARNING28 0
score VIRUS_WARNING33 0

# The following are header rules that won't hit mail from you or this

quotes on the list.

score VIRUS_WARNING15 0
#Any header contains "Found to be infected"
score VIRUS_WARNING66 0
#This one appears to have nothing to do with MailScanner at all:

MailScanner related despite description
