Got a interesting one, that is probably a quick answer. Yesterday we had a
message come in addressed "To: <distribution-list>", "Cc: <another-list>".
Both lists are on the Exchange server which is protected by the MS server in
front of it. Now the message had an attachment with a double extension which
was caught and quarantined (good). However, the list in the "Cc" didn't get
the message (so I'm told). Now this could be people attempting to cover
their a$$ but the fact they raised a trouble ticket (which means they will be
found out if they're telling porkies) casts some doubt on that theory.
So my question is; does MailScanner drop the Cc/Bcc list when a problem with a
message is detected, or does it honour the recipient list?
I haven't been sent the attachment with all the message ID goodies, and I
couldn't be bothered chasing through 40,000+ messages in the maillog
considering I think this is a wild goose chase to start with.
