Re: antivirus in smtp, good or bad?
Stephen J. Wilcox [2/3/2004 7:28 PM] :
Whats happening is we're accepting the mail as the primary MX for the domain butDon't bounce. Reject with 5xx during the SMTP transaction (immediately after the DATA stage). If you accept the mail and detect a virus later, trash it instead of generating a bounce.
If you don't want to set up antivirus, at least set up Exim (preferably with exiscan-acl) to reject mail with suspicious attachments.
You might want to try the exim-users list for some more on this.
