Actually, I take it back. What is coming through the list are the
bounce messages from email servers that the virus is getting sent to.
Some of these bounce messages *still contain the virus* so it would be
nice if they got filtered out. Also, shouldn't the list be able to
intercept bounce messages in general? They tend to be irritating and
clutter up the list.
