I'm still confused.

There are three notifications.

1) The sender of the mail (From: address) is notified that some of their message was blocked. This is controlled by the Notify Senders * settings. See <>

2) An admin or ?? is notified of the action. This is controlled by the
Notice* settings.

3) When an attachment is blocked a notice is placed in the message to the recipient about the blocked attachment and the attachment itself is replaced by a more detailed warning message. This is controlled by the Deleted * Report settings. These point to a file containing a template, but it could be /dev/null.
