Hello, Im running ME 1.19, and I've activeted the antivirus pluguin (Norman Virus Control 5.7). I've to say that works fine. The problem is that I've checked the box that says "Send notification back to sender", but when I send an email with eicar attached to one of our mailboxes with an external adress, our Antivirus detect the eicar file but no mail is send back to the from adress...

Any idea of what happens here?

Tnks,

Marc.

You do not want to use that feature. (I wished ME would remove it.) Almost all the major viruses today "spoof" the senders address so replying to the sender is really trageting the wrong person.

Any admin enabling that feature on any mail/av configuration is a bad admin. ;)

Tnks! The fact that virus spoof sender adress didn't come to my mind, but you're right :roll:

I see now. I'll disable it right now

Tnks,

Marc.
