Got an email from www.bicba.sk saying that my system
was infected with a virus. Looks like they have their
system setup to blindly reply to the from address, either
that or AMaViS is brain dead and does this defaulty. The
from address is almost always spoofed. In fact, the
feature to reply to a sender automatically shouldn't even
be there due to the amount of viruses that spoof the
from address.

    The virus landscape has changed considerably since the
    conception
    of amavis.

    Notifications are fully configurable, and it is the job of
    the admin to
    set it up properly. I have repeatedly recommended to turn
    off sender
    notifications altogether.
