AIUI, your SMTP can deliver to /dev/null and return 250.

Actually, I'd rather have the antivirus software do that instead of 
sending a warning message to the envelope sender:

"Hi, this is the antivirus program at We've detected a 
virus which forges envelope-senders in a message we received. We have no 
way of knowing if this message will reach the infected users' mailbox 
since the virus FORGES envelope-senders, but we've sent this 
advert^Wnotification to you anyway.

BTW, have you received notifications from other braindead antivirus 
software deployed all over the world? We hope you're not drowning in 
them. And try to keep your heart-rate down.
