Can people building virus scanning devices PLEASE GET A %^&*^ CLUE?
This means you, Barricuda Networks, more than anyone else, but we
also see this annoyance from Symantec devices, and from some AOL
systems as well.
It's a simple switch in the GUI of Barracuda Networks to turn of this
annoyance. More operator error than Barracuda's fault, IMHO.
If it is on by default, it is a bug, and not operator error.

(Virus "warnings" to forged addresses are UBE, plain and simple.)

Since when? I disagree.
While we can argue whether it is UBE, it is a pretty dumb move I think we can all agree.. ;-)
