Iâ^À^Ùve been using MailScanner for nearly a year now, excellent program, Iâ^À^Ùm a huge fan. However of late Iâ^À^Ùve just noticed a problem in regards to users being notified of their files, which are either password protected or virus effected (but not bad file extension) being blocked. The problem is that they are not notified â^Øº only I am. I get an email from myself to myself with the blocked file notice. Iâ^À^Ùm not sure why this is, the ideal action would be that the end user and the sender would be notified, so that if the file needs to be released I can do so and the sender can go about sending the file in a different manner.
Here is an excerpt from the maillog of one such emails:
