Subject: Poorly configured AV scanners

We apparently have some folks on this list who still think it makes sense 
to send virus warnings to the sender, even though the sender is forged.

Here's the ones that I've gotten so far, for a "text.pif" file that I 
supposedly sent to the list (which is impossible for me to do, BTW.)

Domain                        AV Gateway Software                Symantec Mail Security                  McAfee Gateway Scanner               NAV for Microsoft Exchange                 F-Secure AV Administrator         ScanMail for Microsoft Exchange                   CxProtect                  NAV for Microsoft Exchange                NAV for Microsoft Exchange                not defined

Please ask your mail admins to turn off notifications.  They are worthless.
