Iam running mimdefang 2.29 on a RH 8.0 System. The last couple days we were flooded with
e-mails containing the Sobig-E virus in an attachment.

mimedefang (sophos) detected the virus in a pif file, which was zipped in a *.zip file. The 
virus file was deleted but the zip file was sent to the enduser as *.zi file, which is totally
Actually I want to discard *EVERY* e-mail which contains a virus, no matter< if 
some other attachments are clean.
Can you please tell me how to achieve this?

Thank you very much for your help!
